Public skin cancer screening has become increasingly common in recent years.
However, currently there is no standardized procedure for these screenings.
Full body skin examination as opposed to examination of sun-exposed areas offers several advantages, including the opportunity to diagnose early melanoma in areas normally covered by clothing.
Disadvantages of full body skin examination include patient resistance because of inconvenience and concerns about privacy and modesty.
The additional time involved in full body skin examination may also be an impediment.
