Dermatologist, ‘skin cancers more frequent, but they can be intercepted and treated’
Rome, March 15 (beraking latest news Salute) – They are the most frequent skin cancers by far. “We are talking about ‘non-melanoma skin cancers’ which include skin cancers and their precursors. Less dangerous and aggressive than others, but they have a huge impact from a social and economic point of view due to their frequency.” This was underlined by beraking latest news Health Fabrizio Fantini, director of the complex structure of Dermatology of Asst of Lecco, scientific director of the course ‘Non melanoma (skin cancer): prevention and therapy of skin cancers other than melanoma’, now available in the offer in the spring of continuing education courses in medicine (Ecm) for over 104 thousand doctors and pharmacists registered on the Sky 440 channel ‘Doctor’s Life’, published by beraking latest news Salute and provider Ecm.
“This type of skin cancer, however, is easily treatable in the case of an early diagnosis – continues Fantini – The variable time is therefore fundamental”. Does the non-specialist doctor play an important role in detecting these neoplasms? “Non-melanoma skin cancers, basalioma (basal cell carcinoma) and spinalioma (squamous cell carcinoma), are a group of neoplasms that are strongly conditioned by repeated sun exposure that can occur for work or other reasons – specifies Fantini – And It is clear that a family doctor who knows his client well may, in the case of these tumors, have undergone an alarm bell and direct the possible patient to the specialist “.
“Non-melanoma skin cancers are unlikely to develop aggressively – remembers the dermatologist, advisor to the Italian Dermatologists Association (Adoi) – And when it happens it takes years. Today we have, and we talk about in some sessions of the course, minimally invasive means. to deal with them also with outpatient treatments. In the Ecm course we also deal with actinic keratoses which are precursor precursory forms on site due to chronic sun exposure “.
The Ecm course consists of a series of video-lessons, lasting a total of 2 hours with online tutoring, created by the teachers with the aid of infographics, iconographic materials and explanatory videos, and was created in collaboration with Adoi. Among the teachers, in addition to Fabrizio Fantini: Michele Pellegrino, director of Uoc Dermatology H Misericordia Grosseto; Davide Strippoli, medical director of the Uoc Dermatology hospital A. Manzoni (Lecco); Franco Marsilim, director of Uoc Dermatology, Northwest Tuscany Usl-Versilia hospital (Lido di Camaiore).
