The Skin Cancer Foundation’s new digital publication for medical professionals focuses on keratinocyte carcinomas, also known as nonmelanoma skin cancers. Carcinomas & Keratoses will shed light on the most recent and important developments in keratinocyte cancers and precancers, including basal cell carcinoma (BCC), cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) and actinic keratosis (AK). We believe this is long overdue, and that these lesions have been dangerously downplayed as “cancers you can just cut off.” Our mission is to give these cancers the serious attention and spotlight they deserve.
