A local physician will staff the clinic and there will be no charge for residents of the General Health District to be screened. Those attending who live outside of the General Health District (Salem and East Liverpool cities) or outside of Columbiana County will be charged $5, which must be paid in cash, for the skin cancer screening service. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. More than 800,000 people develop skin cancer each year. Skin cancers are easy to detect and most can be cured when detected early. General health district residents with a suspicious lesion such as a sore that will not heal, a mole or wart that has changed, a change in color pigmentation of the skin, or any skin abnormality may be seen at this clinic. To schedule an appointment for the skin cancer screening clinic call 330-424-0272.
