Final Recommendation Statement: Screening for Skin Cancer
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force released today a final recommendation statement on screening for skin cancer. The Task Force has found insufficient evidence to recommend for or against using visual examinations by clinicians to screen adults for skin cancer. To view the recommendation and the evidence on which it is based, please go to http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/UpdateSummaryFinal/skin-cancer-screening2. A fact sheet that explains the final recommendation in plain language is also available on this page. The final recommendation statement can also be found in the July 26 online issue of JAMA.
