SCC Update: Defining and Managing High-Risk Cutaneous SCC

SCC Update: Defining and Managing High-Risk Cutaneous SCC

Course Description
This activity reviews what constitutes high risk, including current staging and other considerations. The roles of Mohs/CCPDMA, nodal staging, adjuvant and neoadjuvant therapy including clinical trials, and anti PD1 systemic therapy for N2 and unresectable disease including success rates, major side-effects, and considerations in determining resectability versus appropriateness for systemic therapy are covered.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
  • Apply current prognostic data to identify CSCC patients who are at risk for metastasis and death.
  • Determine ideal surgical approach or determine that patient is eligible for systemic therapy as an alternative to surgery.
  • Choose appropriate strategies for nodal staging, adjuvant therapy, and surveillance for recurrence.
