Housecall for Health: Skin Cancer Screening
Checking out that new mole on your skin is a good idea but, according to new research, it might not help with the treatment of skin cancer.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s Housecall for Health:
New research says that even though skin cancer screening detects more tumors, it’s still questionable whether it actually saves more lives.
A study out of Germany, which has had a national skin cancer screening program since 2008, finds that many screenings lead to unnecessary biopsy or treatment because of false positives.
So although there is some excess cost, the program causes an overall better awareness about skin cancer.
