Abstract

Many deaths of melanoma can be prevented through identification and screening of persons at greatest risk of disease. Herein, we discuss various strategies to reduce avoidable mortality--including targeted screening of persons with changing moles and middle-aged and older men of lower socioeconomic status. We also propose the framework for a randomized screening trial for melanoma.
