  • 1 in 5 Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime.
  • The incidence of melanoma has been on the rise for the last 30 years however is highly curable when detected early.
  • Early detection is vital, as advanced melanoma spreads to the lymph nodes and internal organs it can result in death.
  • One American dies from melanoma every hour.

At Dermatology Associates of Wisconsin we pride ourselves by offering education, prevention, detection and the latest treatment options.  In 2012, we treated approximately 13,300 patients for skin cancer.

This skin cancer screening will allow members of the community to have their skin checked for any suspicious growths that are changing in size, color, asymmetry or bleeding and/or crusting.  Attendees will have an opportunity to meet the providers and become more familiar with the clinic.  Should a recommendation be made by the provider for further treatment, the patient will have an opportunity to schedule an appointment to have the spot biopsied and checked for skin cancer.

The free skin cancer screenings will be held by providers at the following clinics: (Click on location for address, clinic information and directions)

Skin Cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States and Dermatology Associates of Wisconsin strives to improve the communities we serve by decreasing the severity of skin disease through public awareness initiatives, personalized treatment plans and effective collaboration with our partners in medicine that brings the best dermatology in your neighborhood.

  1. I was wondering if you would be having any more free skin cancer checks in the fox valley area or Manitowoc coming up? I only seen that you were having it in Green Bay but that won’t work because we will be out of town and we are very interested in coming to one that would be near by. My boyfriend has a weird looking mole on his scalp that I am concerned about and he currently doesn’t have insurance so the free check would be nice to know if he needs any further treatment. Any suggestions on what I can do? Otherwise if there are no nearby free clinics coming up would it be possible for him to come with me for one of my 6 month follow up checks and have the doctor look at it then, or can’t they do that?

    Thank you!!

    • Hi Megan,

      At this time, we do not have a free skin screening planned for the Fox Valley or Manitowoc area, but please check back for information and locations of future skin screenings. Also, an individual appointment is necessary for a skin screening appointment.

      If you are in the Hudson area, Dr. David Nelsen will be participating at a “Beautiful Expo” in Hudson, Wisconsin. The details of the event are:
