Anisha Patel, MD, FAAD; and Joshua Zeichner, MD, FAAD
Anisha B. Patel, MD discusses the latest advances in systemic treatment for melanoma with host Joshua Zeichner, MD. She reviews how treatments work, the most common cutaneous reactions patients experience, and the dermatologist's role in managing those reactions and reassuring patients that these reactions do not mean they need to stop live-saving treatment. She also discusses systemic options for non-resectable squamous cell carcinoma, as well as research into treating basal cell carcinoma. They also talk about when dermatologists should treat and when they should refer and the importance of having a good referral network.
