They are by far the most frequent skin cancers. “Let’s talk about the ‘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 “. Fabrizio Fantini, director of the complex structure of Dermatology of the Asst di Lecco, scientific director of the course ‘Non melanoma (skin cancer): prevention and therapy of skin cancers other than melanoma’, now available in the spring offer of continuing training courses
in medicine (Ecm) for the over 104 thousand doctors and pharmacists registered on the Sky 440 channel ‘
‘, published by time.news Salute and Ecm provider.
“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 exposure to the sun that can occur for work or other reasons – specifies Fantini – It is clear that a family doctor who knows his client well can, in case you come across these tumors, have suffered an alarm bell and direct the possible patient to the specialist “.
“Non-melanoma skin cancers are unlikely to develop aggressively – remembers the dermatologist, adviser to theAssociation of Italian dermatologists (Adoi) – And when that happens, it takes years. Today we have, and we talk about it in some course sessions, minimally invasive means to deal with them even with outpatient treatments. In the Ecm course we also deal with actinic keratoses
which are precursors in situ precursors 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 theAdoi. Among the teachers, in addition to Fabrizio Fantini: Michele Pellegrino, director of Uoc Dermatology H Misericordia Grosseto; Davide Strippoli, medical director of Uoc Dermatology hospital A. Manzoni (Lecco); Franco Marsili, director of Uoc Dermatology, Northwest Tuscany Usl-Versilia hospital (Lido di Camaiore).
