Free SPOTme Skin Cancer Screenings

DLC of Chapel Hill partners with The Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation and the American Academy of Dermatology’s SPOTme program to offer free screenings.

Free skin cancer screenings have been suspended in order adhere to the recommendations of the CDC and state government during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to resume free skin cancer screenings at some point in the future, please check back! 

In the case that you do not present/show up for your free skin cancer screening and do not give advance cancellation notice, we will not schedule another free skin cancer screening for you in the future. You are welcome to schedule an appointment as a regular patient. Please review our patient responsibilities.

Will the screening take the place of my yearly exam with my dermatologist or physician?

This is a rapid screening for skin cancer only and should not replace or be a substitute for a yearly examination with your physician or dermatologist.

Can I ask the medical personnel to look at my skin for other dermatologic conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, etc.?

SPOTme® skin cancer screenings are for skin cancer only. Please make an appointment for other dermatologic concerns. If you do not have a dermatologist, we are happy to assist you. Our office is happy to register you as a patient, or you can locate a dermatologist in your area by using the AAD’s Find a Dermatologist tool or by calling the American Academy of Dermatology toll-free at (888) 462-DERM.

For other dermatologic conditions, please provide your health insurance upon check in.  

Please note that we have separate patient intake forms for other dermatologic conditions. Please check that our office contracts with your insurance company as we will file your insurance for other and/or follow-up concerns.  We are happy to make you a chart and, if the schedules permits, to address your other concerns today.
