Site-Specific Cancer Series: Skin Cancer

Despite advances in oncology, dermatology, and genetics, the most commonly occurring cancer in the United States is skin cancer. Written by oncology and dermatology nurse experts, the latest volume in the site-specific cancer series provides a comprehensive review for nurses caring for patients who have been diagnosed cancer of the skin.

Skin Cancer discusses the etiology and pathophysiology, risk factors, diagnostic criteria, prevention, treatment, and relevant research for skin cancer. Cancers covered include melanoma basal call, squamous cell, Merkel cell, and cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. The book also provides a discussion of treatment modalities used in each type of skin cancer, including surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and immunologic, biologic, and targeted therapies.
