Before the Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants on Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, the fans will have a chance to check their health on Saturday.

The American Academy of Dermatology and the Cowboys will host free skin cancer screenings during the Dallas Cowboys Rally Day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday. The screenings will be held in private booths on the sidelines. Local board-certified dermatologists will conduct visual examinations to check participants for signs of skin cancer.

Screening participants will be eligible to win autographed Cowboys memorabilia.

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S., and it’s estimated that 2,290 new cases of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, will be diagnosed in Texas this year. Men older than 50 have a higher risk of developing melanoma than the general population.

Skin cancer, including melanoma, is highly treatable when detected early.
