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

In this skin cancer update video, Associate Professor Giuseppe Argenziano discusses the revolutionary results of a study comparing lymph-node dissection with observation in patients with advanced metastatic melanoma. Of patients who had a positive sentinel-node biopsy, the study compared the outcomes of patients who underwent complete lymph-node dissection with the outcomes of patients who were just observed after a positive sentinel-node biopsy and did not undergo a dissection.

The study found that the three-year survival rate was similar in the dissection group and the observation group. It concluded that immediate lymph node dissection increased the rate of regional disease control but did not increase melanoma-specific survival in patients with melanoma and sentinel-node metastasis.

In the full video below, Giuseppe describes the results as practice-changing. Watch the latest skin cancer update here:
