Abstract

A skin cancer screening programme involving 2150 employees based at the head office of a large UK retailer resulted in the detection of four melanomas at an early curable stage. In addition, three other malignant and three potentially malignant tumours were discovered, and individuals at greater risk of developing melanoma were identified and counselled accordingly.
