There has been a sharp decrease nationwide in access to cancer prevention visits. This type of medical visit is essential for detecting cancer at a very early stage to treat it effectively and reduce mortality rates.
Our health system is still under a lot of pressure managing the pandemic. Patients are still afraid of going to hospital or don’t want to wait in long lines for a vist. For this reason, the Valter Baldaccini Foundation embraced the idea proposed by the delegation of the ANT Foundation in Umbria: to offer citizens the possibility of a free dermatological examination for the prevention of skin cancer.
The visits will be held in the ANT Prevention Bus on Friday 25 and Saturday 26 March 2022 at Foligno’s Piazza della Repubblica, where citizens will have the opportunity to receive a dermatological examination with the aid of dermatoscopy for the timely diagnosis of suspicious or neoplastic lesions. Dermatoscopy is a non-invasive dermatological test that examines the characteristics of the pigmented structures of the epidermis, which are not perceivable by simple inspection with the naked eye.
Places are limited, so it is necessary to book, starting today, March 15, 2022, by calling the organizing secretariat number 345 4986756.
The initiative is sponsored by the Municipality of Foligno and is possible thanks to the contribution of the Valter Baldaccini Foundation. ANT has long been our partner in support projects for families who are in difficulty due to the illness of a loved one. For 2022 we are happy to be able to offer our territory the possibility of accessing a free medical examination.
