That's why on Melanoma Monday, the first Monday of May, one Suncoast dermatologist offered cancer screenings absolutely free.

The American Cancer Society predicts doctors will diagnose more than 90,000 cases of melanoma this year.

"In early-stage skin cancer it's completely curable; you have a 100-percent cure rate", said Dr. Kulkarni.

"We're not there yet", said Dr. Landon Johnson a Dermatologist with Moeller Dermatology.

She recommends reapplying a sunscreen of at least 30 SPF every two hours.
