    Article - En anglais

    Background

    Whether persons who come for skin cancer/melanoma screening are those at highest risk for the disease remains a debatable issue.

    Objective

    Our purpose was to evaluate the appropriateness of self-selection of persons attending screening clinics.

    Methods

    We studied the frequency of malignant and/or premalignant clinical diagnoses according to certain demographic characteristics as a measure of selective attendance among 2463 persons screened in the regions of Arnhem and Eindhoven in 1990.
