Skin Cancer Update with Prof Giuseppe Argenziano [September 2018]
In this month’s skin cancer update video, Professor Giuseppe Argenziano discusses follow-ups for patients with melanoma. This is important for the early detection of recurrences and second primary melanomas, which are risk factors for patients with a history of melanoma.
Giuseppe discusses best-practice standards for screening at-risk melanoma patients at follow-up appointments in order to find early or asymptomatic disease that has recurred or metastasised. He gives the example of a case where regular screening of a 42-year-old woman who had previously had melanoma led to the early detection and targeted treatment of disease metastasis in her lungs.
