Free skin cancer screenings at mobile clinic

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The Skin Cancer Foundation is offering free, full-body cancer screenings in San Diego this week.

The Road to Health Skin Tour features a 38-foot customized RV where local dermatologists perform skin checks and teach patients what to look for.

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S., and doctors say regular screenings are critical, especially in sunny San Diego. 

"It's very hard to avoid the sun. Even with adequate sun protection, skin cancer is far and away more common than all other cancers combined. Everyone is at risk to develop one," Dr. Patrick Blake of Poway Dermatology said.

There is one more screening event on Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Rite Aid on 7100 Avenida Encinas in Carlsbad.
