Skin cancer is both preventable and treatable, yet it is becoming alarmingly common. The key to successful treatment (other than education and prevention) is early recognition and swift referral. Fast Facts: Skin Cancer has been written by three international experts to equip healthcare professionals with the necessary skills to save lives. Highlights include:

  • Expert presentation of the basic facts on epidemiology, causation, presentation and management
  • Over 100 color illustrations to assist with the identification of at-risk individuals and early lesions
  • Pull-out tables of cancer staging for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma
  • Advice to give patients on self-examination
  • A thorough overview of all treatment options: topical therapies, cryotherapy, curettage and electrosurgery, photodynamic therapy and lasers, radiotherapy, surgical excision and Mohs micrographic surgery
  • Discussion of preventive measures

This fully updated second edition is a practical evidence-based resource, written from an international perspective to reflect national and international guidelines. It will assist clinical practice, education, training, audit and research, and is essential reading for generalists and specialists alike.

Epidemiology; Pathogenesis; Clinical features and diagnosis; Management; Prognosis; Prevention; Future trends

Comments for the authors

Sharon, United Kingdom 17 Mar 2017

After reading this book, I was concerned about a couple of patches on my husband's face. I urged him to see the GP (and he took the book with him). Turned out he has actinic keratoses on both cheeks. The GP was impressed with the book! Initial topical treatment hasn't had much effect, so he's now been referred to a dermatologist.
