VISUAL SKIN CANCER CHECKS ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH
Dermatologists always recommend a visual screening for skin cancer to their patients. However, a recent report by a panel of medical experts suggest that these checks do not cut it. The same kind of investigation was launched in 2009 to determine the benefits of visual skin cancer screenings. The results of that report determined that these checks merited an “I”, or insufficient evidence to say that these visual screenings for skin cancer provided any benefit to the patient. Despite a repeated evaluation of the service, the committee’s determination did not change. The group who conducted this research is comprised of independent medical researchers who volunteered for the job. It analyzes services that are lauded to be beneficial for patients who want preventative resources.
