Skin Cancer Screenings Not Recommended!

Yes, the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), an independent group of primary care physicians and epidemiologists with federal funding, once again determined that there is currently not enough evidence to recommend skin cancer screenings. This is similar to their previous findings in 2009. This important article was published in the July 26, 2016 issue of JAMA (JAMA. 2016;316(4):429-435. doi:10.1001/jama.2016.8465. ) and is available here:http://jama.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=2536643
