May is Melanoma Awareness month

Posted: Updated:
SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Skin caner is the most common of all cancers, but it is also the easiest to cure, if diagnosed and treated early.

May is Melanoma Awareness month, and as part of the KFMB company's wellness program to keep employees healthy, a dermatologist came in Thursday to perform skin screenings.

All employees who wanted to get checked were able to do so for free, including CBS 8's Dan Cohen.

"A lot of times it can happen in areas people don't think to look like the legs or the back , the bottom of the feet even so those are reasons to kind of get checked," said Dr. Patrick Blake. 

Dan walked away with a clean bill of health, but was reminded to always wear sunscreen outdoors.
