S2.E3: SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA (SCC) and actinic keratoses
This episode covers the spectrum of keratinocyte atypia from actinic keratosis, to Bowen’s disease, and finally squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). SCC is the second most common skin cancer and about 600 Australians die from SCC every year. Join Dr Blake Mumford, Associate Professor Alvin Chong, and Dr Michelle Goh as they discuss their approach to actinic keratoses, the best management for high-risk SCCs, and everything else you need to know about these common skin lesions.
Our guest specialist for this episode is Dr Michelle Goh, a consultant dermatologist at the Skin Health Institute, where she works in the Skin Cancer Assessment and Transplant Dermatology Clinics. Michelle is without a doubt one of the busiest and most experienced dermatologists in Melbourne. She is the current Victorian examiner for the Australasian College of Dermatologists and has consulting positions at several hospitals, including the Skin Health Institute, the Peter MacCallum Cancer Center, St Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne, The Austin, The Alfred, and the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
Her areas of interest are complex skin cancers especially in patients who are immunosuppressed, cutaneous adverse reactions to drugs including immunotherapy, and biologics therapy in inflammatory skin disease.
