International health insurance customers who are considering visiting their doctor for a screening might want to make sure they are prepared to be examined to allow their doctor to perform a thorough check.
Doctors have claimed that time constraints and patient embarrassment are proving to be problematic barriers to skin cancer examinations.
According to a paper published in the Archives of Dermatology, 44.2 per cent of dermatologists cited patient embarrassment or reluctance as a moderate or major barrier to carrying out a full-body skin cancer examination.
Meanwhile, family practitioners were more likely to cite time constraints as a barrier, with 54.4 per cent of those questioned stating that this was the case compared to 30.6 per cent of dermatologists.
The study's authors commented: "Understanding the determinants of patient skin cancer screening could help promote interventions based on physician characteristics that are amenable to change, potentially improve physicians' prevention practices and help promote early detection."
