May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month

Skin cancer is the most common kind of cancer wherein 1 in 5 people will have it within their lifetime. Skin cancer, however, is very preventable and is getting easier to test with advances in technology including the use of telemedicine.

Telemedicine has become more accurate and cost saving than seeing a specialist. It can determine, with great accuracy, the likelihood that an abnormal growth is cancerous or not through image analysis rather than having to provide multiple skin samples for testing*. To learn more about telemedicine, contact your provider or an EBC consultant.
