The epidemic increase in such tumors calls for efficient management by the application of appropriate guidelines for therapy and prevention. Clinicians managing patients with skin cancer need to keep up to date with the latest advances, allowing them to provide optimal treatment. This practical guide offers the reader a comprehensive overview of the options for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cutaneous cancer. It covers all common skin cancers, as well as some less frequent and precancerous lesions, including: malignant melanoma basal cell carcinoma actinic keratosis Kaposís sarcoma and Merkel cell carcinoma. Employing an "evidence-based medicine" approach, this truly international work presents a well-illustrated text in a reader-friendly format with step-by-step guidelines and visual flowcharts.
