Nobody is alone. ReachNJ is an addiction treatment service to provide information on addiction resources available in the state of New Jersey.

May is Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month


Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the main cause of skin cancer. UV damage can also cause wrinkles and blotches or spots on your skin. The good news is that skin cancer can be prevented, and it can almost always be cured when it’s found and treated early.

The Borough of Lincoln Park Health Department is proud to participate in Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month. During the month of May, join us in taking action to prevent skin cancer and reduce the risk of UV damage.
