The Mole Patrol celebrated its 20th anniversary on Aug. 6 with an annual screening event on Clearwater Beach at the Pier 60 Pavilion. 

Moffitt’s Mole Patrol® is a mobile skin cancer screening program made up of a team of physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners specializing in dermatology and/or skin cancer, as well as registered nurses and support staff.

Since 1996, the Mole Patrol® has screened more than 15,000 people and thousands of those screened required further evaluation by a dermatologist.  

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, with nearly 5.5 million Americans being diagnosed each year.
