Evidence lacking to assess benefits/harm of visual skin cancer screening

from Clinical Advisor

Evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of visual screening for skin cancer in adults, according to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force. The task force did find that clinicians have modest sensitivity and specificity in detecting melanoma during visual checks; however, evidence also showed that these visual screenings may have negative effects. The evidence did not provide sufficient data to quantify these harms. more
