It's also important to take preventative measure when being in the sun, even in the cooler months. The easiest is to stay out of the sun at peak times-between 12n and 4, and to seek shade.  Otherwise it's suggested to: slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen-with spf of 15 or more, slap on a hat and wrap around sunglasses.
The Skin Cancer Screening at Family Medicine Clinic in Le Mars is Wednesday, September 14th from 5:30 to 6:30pm.  Floyd Valley Hospital recommends wearing loose clothing around any suspected areas and says to anticipate that there may be a wait, as it $2 check is done on a first come first served basis.
