The field of dermato-oncology is ever expanding, with substantial advances in non-invasive diagnostic tools, such as dermoscopy, ultrasonography, confocal microscopy and optical coherence tomography. In addition, the incidence of skin cancers, including melanoma and NMSC, is increasing, and the novel diagnostic techniques may enable skin cancers to be diagnosed at earlier stages.
Non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) comprise common cutaneous malignancies, including basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC), together with rare cutaneous cancers, such as Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) and other forms of adnexal cancers. The majority of NMSCs can be successfully treated with surgery or radiotherapy; however, advanced and metastatic stages may require systemic approaches, such as immunotherapy with immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs).
Since immunotherapy is not effective in all patients, and can potentially lead to severe adverse effects, an important clinical question is how to properly identify those who could be suitable candidates for this therapeutic choice.
Here, we welcome reviews and original research pertaining to melanoma and NMSC diagnosis and management.
Dr. Gianluca Nazzaro
