Skin Cancer Update with A/Prof Giuseppe Argenziano [February 2018]
In this month’s skin cancer update, Associate Professor Giuseppe Argenziano explains some important rules to avoid missing a melanoma. Giuseppe says it is possible for any doctor to miss a melanoma, but there are a set of rules we can apply to every scenario to decrease the likelihood of this happening.
Giuseppe gives the example of two patients whose moles looked dermoscopically similar, yet one lesion was benign and the other was a melanoma. How can doctors avoid making the wrong decision in a case like this?
In the video below, Giuseppe shares seven essential rules for making safe and effective decisions about whether to excise or monitor a lesion.
