A survey of skin cancer screening in the primary care setting: A comparison with other cancer screenings
Practice Patterns, Physicians'

The reported importance of skin cancer screening and frequency of skin cancer examination among primary care physicians is significantly less than for other cancer examinations. This likely represents a multitude of factors, including logistic constraints and lack of consensus on the efficacy of skin cancer screening. Arch Fam Med. 2000;9:1022-1027
