Abstract: The treatment of skin cancer has become an increasingly multispecialty practice. Ongoing surgical and postsurgical advances and emergent factors that predispose patients to these tumors have changed the treatment paradigm. Having a keen understanding of diagnostic, surgical, and nonsurgical treatment options is key to identifying, treating, or referring patients with potential cutaneous malignancies.While Brian R. Gastmans Cutaneous Malignancies: A Surgical Perspective is the first of its kind to emphasize surgical management of skin cancer, several sections are devoted to systemic nonsurgical therapies affecting patient care and surgical intervention. Topics encompassed include prevention, diagnosis, medication management, appropriate margin size, reconstruction methods, and the importance of stellar dermatopathology.Key HighlightsThe role of Mohs micrographic surgery and radiation in skin cancer treatmentTreatment approaches for the two most common forms of skin cancer respectively, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinomaSurgical treatment of cutaneous malignant melanoma and other high-risk malignanciesClinical insights on completion lymphadenectomy and sentinel node biopsy for melanoma, two topics rarely addressed in context with skin cancerDiagnosis and treatment of rare malignancies including Merkel cell carcinoma, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, cutaneous angiosarcoma, and cutaneous leiomyosarcomaMore than 400 high-quality illustrations further delineate surgical modalitiesEdited by an esteemed dual board certified plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist, this definitive book is the most complete guide to surgical management of skin cancer. It is essential reading for plastic surgeons, dermatologists, otolaryngologists, and all clinicians who treat or refer patients with suspected skin cancer.
