[7 min watch] Skin Cancer Update with Prof Giuseppe Argenziano | March 2021
In this month’s skin cancer update, Professor Giuseppe Argenziano shares the results of his meta-analysis research into paediatric melanoma.
This is an extremely rare disease, especially in children under 10. In this video, Giuseppe talks about the two types of paediatric melanoma: congenital melanoma and de novo melanoma.
One of the major points from Giuseppe’s recent research is that in children, melanoma is much more often associated with a pre-existing congenital naevus.
Another key point found in the research is that children who die from melanoma typically have nodular melanoma rather than superficial spreading melanoma or Spitzoid melanoma.
See all this and much more in the full video!
