According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common cancer of all cancer types. Although melanoma represents only about 1% of all skin cancers, this tumour is still responsible for most skin cancer deaths and its incidence is steadily on the rise. Skin cancers, basal and squamous cell carcinomas, malignant melanomas, and Merkel cell carcinomas, constitute arguably the most common and increasingly prevalent human neoplasms. Skincancer provides information on a wide range of skincancer topics with emphasis on the emergence of new diagnostic approaches, therapeutic perspectives, and a better insight into the biology of the skin tumours.
This journal entitled Journal of Skin Cancer Case Reports represents an International effort to highlight advances in our understanding of malignant melanoma from both clinical and research perspectives. Case reports in skin cancer journal publishes unique perspectives regarding melanoma epidemiology, risk factors, diagnostic and prognostic tools, phenotypes, treatment, and future research directions. Management of melanoma is challenging, especially for the late stage of the disease. Development of new therapies and optimizing current treatments are being pursued in attempt to further improve the survival rate.
Journal of Skin Cancer Case Reports provides up-to-date knowledge and experience in early diagnosis, prevention and treatment of melanoma as well as current ongoing clinical studies on melanoma. The journal also provides the most recent perspectives of research on the molecular basis of melanoma, such as melanoma associated genes and a possible link between stress and melanoma. It also includes several case reports that illustrate novel methods for diagnosing melanoma in the clinic using new technologies, which are likely to significantly improve outcomes. Several articles of this journal covers surgical techniques and other present very rare or challenging clinical cases of melanoma and how these were treated.
Skin Cancer Case Reports Journal provides an excellent overview of how melanoma is treated in the clinic. Since oncologists and clinicians across the globe contributed to this skin cancer journal, each area also explores the unique burdens that geographical areas experience from melanoma subtypes and how these are treated in different settings. Skin Cancer Case Reports Journal publishing articles by a diverse panel of experts, presents a description of the most relevant aspects of the epidemiology, diagnosis, local treatment, prognostic biomarkers and treatment for advanced disease, including the most recent research on novel molecules.
