194378 - Skin tumours: the common and the unexpected

  • : Online

Selected Dr's numbering no more than 12 in total will be invited to a interactive case based study workshops. Up to four interesting, complex and sometimes misleading skin cases will be presented for discussion, analysis and advice from expert Pathologists, Dermatologist and Plastic Surgeons who will be in attendance at each meeting. Cases to be covered and discussed are Non Melanocytic lesions, Pigmented lesions and Inflammatory conditions of the skin.

Relevance to General Practice

It is well recognised that Australia and New Zealand have the highest incidence of skin melanoma in the world, resulting in significant morbidity, mortality and healthcare costs. Removal of suspicious pigmented lesions is widely practised by GP's and Dermatologists in an effort to pick up melanomas at this earliest stage. The majority of newly diagnosed invasive melanomas are localised lesions that have not metastasised. However, melanoma is a highly unpredictable disease, and a guarantee of cure cannot be made, even with thin lesions 1mm or less in depth. Not all melanomas are pigmented melanotic melanomas exist) and not all pigmented skin lesions are melanocytic.
