About this book

Skin cancer is the most common malignant neoplasm, and with the increasing regularity of such tumors comes the need for a practical guide for medical professionals to reference for diagnosis, management, and treatment. This book covers everything from the epidemiology of the skin cancer, clinical presentation with clinical photographs, diagrams of the most common anatomical locations, to histological descriptions, special stains/tests for diagnosis, and a treatment algorithm in chart form.  A Practical Guide to Skin Cancer offers brief and succinct chapters with pertinent references, as well as high quality color photographs, diagrams, tables, and charts. 

Written for dermatologists, dermatology residents, and oncologists, this book allows for the reader to quickly and easily obtain the information regarding a tumor’s clinical presentation, patient evaluation and treatment algorithms, proving essential for every physician who encounters these tumors in their daily practice.

Reviews

“Delivering exactly what it promises, this book condenses the latest therapies for treating skin cancers into excellent summaries without an exhaustive review of studies. The information is practical and appropriate for clinical dermatologists. … What is very appealing is the directness of the writing and the lack of ambiguity in treatment recommendations. … Why anyone would hesitate to read this book is a mystery.” (Patricia Wong, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2018)
