Skin Cancer
by Keyvan Nouri

This superbly illustrated text is a must-have clinical companion for any dermatology practice. Skin Cancer carefully takes you through every important step in the diagnosis and clinical management of skin cancer conditions.

Skin Cancer begins with an incisive discussion of both normal and aging skin, and the incidences and causes of skin cancer.

The next section gives thorough look at all types of skin cancer-followed by a section on treating cancer in various patient populations, including non-white populations, children, and pregnant women.

The book concludes with in-depth sections on skin cancer prevention-covering critical topics such as skin cancer vaccines and chemoprevention of skin cancer-in addition to the medicolegal and economic issues related to skin cancer.
