Free skin cancer screenings will be available at two Lexington drug stores this week.
The Skin Cancer Foundation is stopping at Rite Aid stores as part of a national tour to educate people about skin cancer. Local dermatologists perform the screenings in private rooms in a customized recreation vehicle.
Rite Aid spokesman Eric Harkreader said the exams are given on a first-come, first-served basis, and they last 10 to 20 minutes. Harkreader said lines usually form early because the summer reminds people about the need for sun protection and early detection for skin cancer.
The tour will make three stops in Lexington: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday at the Rite Aid at 2700 Richmond Road, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday at the Rite Aid at 2284 Versailles Road.
