New Monthly Skin Cancer Clinic For Screenings, Treatment

July 21, 2016

Never ignore a change in the size or color of a mole, growth or spot on your body, sores that never heal or unusual tenderness, itching or pain. It could be a sign of skin cancer.

Get an overall examination and other skin cancer-related services at the new Skin Cancer Detection and Treatment Program, a monthly service starting July 27 at the Hartford HealthCare Institute at The Hospital of Central Connecticut.

Dr. Frank Santoro, a skin cancer specialist, and Lindita Vinca, an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, will be available on the fourth Wednesday each month from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. For an appointment, call 203.694.5857.

The new service offers appointments without a scheduling backlog for people who:

  • Have a concerning skin lesion.
  • Want an overall skin exam.
  • Have been diagnosed with skin cancer.
  • Experience rashes during chemotherapy treatment.

It is not recommended for people with common rashes.
