Monday afternoon Heartland Regional Medical Center is sponsoring a free screening for people with suspicious lumps or moles. Dr. Kevin Claffey is a General Surgeon at Heartland and says sometimes the early signs of problems are not very obvious.
"Especially moles can be very subtle. If they have some concerning characteristics it's often very easy, a small procedure to excise a small skin lesion, but sometimes it can offer huge benefits."
