Update of the Management of Cutaneous Squamous-cell Carcinoma
Eve Maubec
For all primary cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (cSCCs), physical examination should include full skin examination, recording of tumour diameter and regional lymph-node–basin status. Surgery is the treatment of choice, with a minimal 5-mm margin. For elderly patients with well-differentiated tumours, other surgical modalities can be explored. Surgery for organ-transplant recipients should not ...

Biomarkers Predicting for Response and Relapse with Melanoma Systemic Therapy
Sarah J. Welsh, Pippa G. Corrie

Surgery is the treatment of choice, with a minimal 5-mm margin. For elderly patients with well-differentiated tumours, other surgical modalities can be explored.

Cutaneous Melanoma – A Review of Systemic Therapies
Karla A. Lee, Paul Nathan
This decade has brought significantly improved outcomes for patients with advanced melanoma with immunotherapies and targeted treatments offering utility in a variety of settings. In 2020, we can hope for durable long-term responses, and complete remission in a subset of patients with metastatic disease. In the adjuvant setting, approximately 50% improvements in recurrence-free survival are seen b ...

Update in the Management of Basal Cell Carcinoma
Nicole Basset-Seguin, Florian Herms
Basal cell carcinomas are the most frequent skin cancers in the fair-skinned adult population over 50 years of age. Their incidence is increasing throughout the world. Ultraviolet (UV) exposure is the major carcinogenic factor. Some genodermatosis can predispose to formation of basal cell carcinomas at an earlier age. Basal cell carcinomas are heterogeneous, from superficial or nodular lesions of ...

Melanoma Risk and Melanocyte Biology
Julie U. Bertrand, Eirikur Steingrimsson, Fanélie Jouenne, Brigitte Bressac-de Paillerets, Lionel Larue
Cutaneous melanoma arises from melanocytes following genetic, epigenetic and allogenetic (i.e. other than epi/genetic) modifications. An estimated 10% of cutaneous melanoma cases are due to inherited variants or de novo mutations in approximately 20 genes, found using linkage, next-generation sequencing and association studies. Based on these studies, 3 classes of predisposing melanoma genes have ...

Melanoma Genomics
Julia Newton-Bishop, D. Timothy Bishop , Mark Harland
The incidence of cutaneous melanoma continues to increase in pale skinned peoples in Europe and elsewhere. Epidemiological studies identified genetically determined phenotypes such as pale skin, freckles and red hair, and sunburn as risk factors for this cancer. The development of many melanocytic naevi is also genetically determined and a strong melanoma risk phenotype. Not surprisingly then, gen ...

It’s Not All Sunshine: Non-sun-related Melanoma Risk-factors
Veronique Bataille
There is increasing evidence that the behaviour of naevi and melanoma is under significant genetic and/or epigenetic control. Melanoma tumours behaves similarly all over the world. Many genes have now been implicated in melanoma risk and naevi number. Embryogenesis has also been important in the discovery of links between several neurological diseases and melanoma susceptibility. Telomere biology, ...

Melanoma Epidemiology and Sun Exposure
Sara Raimondi, Mariano Suppa, Sara Gandini
The worldwide incidence of melanoma has increased rapidly over the last 50 years. Melanoma is the most common cancer found in the young adult population, and its incidence is very high among geriatric populations. The incidence of melanoma varies by sex, and this factor is also associated with differences in the anatomical site melanoma. Adolescent and young adult women have a higher incidence tha ...
