For all skin cancers and nonmelanoma skin cancer, dermatologists performed the fewest number of biopsies to diagnose one skin cancer compared with other types of clinicians, including primary care.

“The American Academy of Dermatology’s Burden of Skin Disease Report demonstrated that there are far too few board-certified dermatologists to manage all patients with skin disease, and primary care physicians are often at the frontline of skin cancer screening,” Ashley Privalle, MD, of the department of dermatology at University of Wisconsin-Madison and Mayo Clinic, and colleagues wrote.
