Skin Cancer Update with A/Prof Giuseppe Argenziano [September]

In this skin cancer update video, Associate Professor Giuseppe Argenziano shares the results of a meta-analysis of nevus-associated melanoma. The study asked whether a nevus was a precursor lesion of melanoma.

It found that only a third of melanomas arise from a pre-existing nevus, and the majority of melanomas developed from nondysplastic nevi.

Giuseppe urges physicians to consider that dysplastic and dermal nevi carry the same risk of developing into melanoma. He highlights the significance of these findings on melanoma management in primary care.
