The incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) in the United States has been increasing for the past several decades with current estimates of approximately 9,500 new cases every day. Non-melanoma skin tumors represent the largest category of malignancies of any organ system. In recent years, there have been significant advances in the management of these tumors with higher grade/stage tumors requiring a multidisciplinary approach. This conference will focus on the diagnosis and management of some NMSC tumors.
This conference is intended for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, residents, fellows, and students who are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with non-melanoma skin cancer.
At the conclusion of the conference, participants should be better able to:
- Define criteria for diagnosing squamous cell carcinoma, basal cell carcinoma, Merkel cell carcinoma, and CD30-positive T-cell lymphoma
- Explain criteria for different surgical options and review outcomes
- Describe criteria and outcomes for the use of radiation therapy
- Recite criteria, options, and outcomes for the use of chemotherapy
