[Comment] Computer-assisted diagnosis for skin cancer: have we been outsmarted?

Skin cancer is the most common malignancy in fair-skinned populations, with melanoma incidence the highest in New Zealand and Australia (50 and 48 per 100 000 population, respectively) and projected to increase in the UK (from 17 to 36 per 100 000 population) and in the USA (from 29 to 32 per 100 000 population) between 2007–11 and 2022–26.1 Non-melanoma skin cancer is up to 20 times more common than melanoma worldwide.2 For every melanoma diagnosed, there are from three to 40 benign lesions biopsied; the proportion of biopsied lesions that are benign is generally greater in primary care than in specialist settings.
