What's that Spot? The Warning Signs of Skin Cancer

01-12-2018

Skin cancer can be tough to spot – especially trying to distinguish it from completely benign moles, beauty marks, or other skin markings. Protecting your skin from sun exposure, along with being aware of all your “spots” and any changes that occur in them, are very important steps in the prevention and early detection of skin cancer.

To learn more about how to take better care of your skin and what kind of spots to look out for, joinHope Bueller, MD, a fellowship trained facial plastic surgeon and ear, nose and throat specialist with Memorial Medical Group, for What’s that Spot? The Warning Signs of Skin Cancer, a free seminar.

Dr. Bueller received her medical degree from the University of South Florida in Tampa, where she was awarded the Academic Excellence Award and Farrior Otolaryngology Award. She then went on to complete her otolaryngology residency at West Virginia University in Morgantown, during which time she received the Touma Resident Research Award. More recently, she completed a facial plastic and reconstructive surgery fellowship at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

What’s that Spot? is a free seminar being held at 12 noon on Friday, January 26, in the Shearman Conference Center at Memorial Hospital on Oak Park Boulevard. Light lunch will be provided, and reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance.
