Skin Cancer Update with A/Prof Giuseppe Argenziano [December]
In our last skin cancer update video for 2017, Associate Professor Giuseppe Argenziano discusses the process of monitoring patients with multiple nevi, and how melanoma comes to be diagnosed in these patients.
Around 10 percent of melanomas diagnosed today have been monitored over time in patients with multiple nevi. Practitioners often ask whether a side-by-side comparison is needed in patients with multiple nevi in order to assess changes, or whether the lesions develop to fit specific melanoma criteria over time and can therefore be diagnosed without a side-by-side comparison.
In the full skin cancer update video below, Giuseppe looks at insightful results that indicate that 30 percent of cases require a side-by-side comparison in order to be diagnosed, while 70 percent of melanomas develop enough criteria to be diagnosed without a side-by-side comparison.
