Abstract

The purpose of this service is to introduce the community to the importance of maintaining skin health through self-examination (SAKURI). This service activity aims to develop a technique for conducting early detection of skin cancer using SAKURI in order to take precautions as early as possible on the possibility of skin cancer and early detection of skin cancer which the treatment of the disease can be done as soon as possible and easily to avoid the complications. The results of the service found that almost 90% of the people did not know about the self-examination methods and knowledge of skin cancer is still rarely introduced. Most patients grow small flesh on their skin that spreads throughout the body and they allowed the situation. Therefore, we conducted intensive counseling and treatment to increase the awareness of the people in Indrapuri and the knowledge of medical personnel in the Satelite General Hospital. Then, it has resulted in increasing the understanding of the importance of SAKURI examining skin cancer and protecting the skin to avoid skin cancer. This community service is expected give the contribution to patients, medical personnel and paramedics to increase their knowledge and awareness to immediately be able to do a skin examination if signs of suspicious malignancy on the skin are found. It is expected that the results of this study can be a guideline for medical, paramedic and skin patients as a science which could be implemented in the future
