A MOBILE clinic will offer free skin cancer screening in Madeley this month.

The Lions Club of Girrawheen and the Lions Cancer Institute will run the screening event on Saturday, March 30, at Kingsway Shopping Centre from 9am to 3pm.

People who are aged 20 or older may be at risk if they can answer “yes” to at least three questions, including whether a family member has had a malignant melanoma.

Other questions include whether people have five or more moles on their forearms, have had moles removed that were not cancers, or have had skin cancer previously.

People are also asked whether they have a mole or freckle that is changing, size, colour or shape; have fair skin that burns rather than tans; had blistering sunburn as a child bad enough to stay off school; or had any inflamed skin sores that did not heal.

Call 0417 960 913 to book an appointment. UPDATE: The screenings have been booked out.
