The Month of May is Skin Cancer Awarness Month [AUDIO]
We had the pleasure of having Dr. Mark Jones from the Billings Clinic on the Billings Morning News to explain how important it is to get yourself screened for Melanoma or skin cancer.If you think that skin cancer only attacks older people, then you should know that is inaccurate.
the second most common form of cancer is skin cancer for adolescents and young adults 15-29 years old- Dr. Mark Jones
The first Monday of May is Melanoma Monday to bring out the awareness of this deadly form of cancer.
