Fight Over Skin Cancer

WIGTOWNSHIRE residents are being urged to join the fight over growing concerns of skin cancer. Around 30 people suffer from melanomas in Dumfries and Galloway each year. And, up to three are dying from the treatable disease.

Now, consultant dermatologist at the Royal Infirmary in Dumfries Dr Jonathan Norris is holding melanoma screening days in both Stranraer and Newton Stewart. Dr Norris told the 'Free Press' this week

"We are looking for people to take responsibility for their own health".

The screening will take place at the Garrick Hospital on Tuesday, 6th June, and at Newton Stewart Hospital on Thursday, 22nd June. There will also be a clinic at Dumfries Royal Infirmary on Monday, 5th June.

To book an appointment, phone 01387 241 574 and ask for Christine Proudfoot.
