Skin cancer is the most common cancer that affects mankind. While most skin cancers present in an early stage and require relatively simple forms of treatment, some skin cancers are complex, locally advanced and high risk and require well-coordinated multidisciplinary management. In this educational session, we will discuss management of complex and high-risk skin cancers including locally advanced basal cell and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma and Merkel cell carcinoma. These malignancies are common in general radiation oncology practice, but independently are relatively unusual entities. A panel of specialists in complex, locally advanced and high-risk skin cancers will review epidemiology, biology, diagnosis, staging work-up and treatment by discussing several representative and educational cases.
• Recognize and describe multidisciplinary care available to improve skin cancer patient outcomes.
• Summarize best skin cancer management practices and put them into use to assist in improving patient care.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
