Abstract

Total skin examination during public screening for malignant melanomais often advocated, but the benefit of this approach has not been established properly. We assessed the yield of examination of the entire skin, in addition to examination of intentionally shown skin lesions, in people attending melanoma screening clinics in southern Limburg, the Netherlands, in 1993. Of the 4146 attenders, 2910 (70%) showed a specific skin spot. Additional examination of the entire skin was offeredto 1385 people. There were 1221 evaluable cases. Fourteen presumptivediagnoses of malignancies were encountered: seven malignant melanomas, all with low clinical suspicion, and seven basal cell carcinomas. Histology revealed three basal cell carcinomas. No malignant melanomas were confirmed by histology. It is concluded that additional total skinexamination during screening for malignant melanoma is not worthwhile, except perhaps for persons presenting lesions that are suspicious ofmelanoma or dysplastic naevi.
