Suburban Hospital's cancer care program is dedicated to preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer for residents in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan region. In partnership with community physicians, staff, other health care providers and research affiliates, the program provides a comprehensive range of high quality, compassionate and cost-effective services, including health education, screening, clinical research, diagnosis, treatment, psychosocial support and palliative care. The cancer program, part of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins, is committed to the early detection of cancers. At the two free skin cancer screenings held in 2019, 75 community members were examined by board-certified dermatologists. Four basal cell carcinomas and two squamous cell carcinomas were detected. In addition, 14 community members were screened for oral, head and neck cancers by board-certified otolaryngologists; two with abnormal findings were referred for further evaluation.
