Incorrect Statement About Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer

JAMA Dermatol. 2016;152(9):1065. doi:10.1001/jamadermatol.2016.3419

In the Editorial titled “What the USPSTF ‘Insufficient’ Skin Cancer Screening Recommendation Means for Primary Care Clinicians and Dermatologists,”1 published online July 26, 2016, the following clause in the second paragraph should not have been included: “…and nonmelanoma skin cancer is less fatal than melanoma.” This article was corrected online.
