BERGENFIELD, N.J. — Bergenfield residents are getting an opportunity to get a free screening for the most common form of cancer in the country.

About one million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed each year in the United States, but most skin cancers, including melanoma, can be cured if detected early.

The Bergenfield Health Department is sponsoring a free skin cancer screening from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 9 for Bergenfield residents, age 18 and older who currently aren't under the care of a dermatologist.

The clinic will take place at Bergenfield Borough Hall, 2nd floor, 198 N. Washington Ave., Bergenfield. The purpose is to promote early detection and treatment.

A practitioner from the Advanced Laser & Skin Cancer Center of Teaneck will conduct the screening.

Self-exams, which consist of evaluating your skin for changes or mole growths, also is a recommended prevention tool.

Please call the Health Department at 201-387-4055, option 5, to schedule an appointment.
