SKIN & SKIN CANCER CONFERENCE: SUNDAY, 24 JULY 2022

PLENARY SESSIONS PRESENTERS

Is melanoma in-situ real? An epidemic of overdiagnosis. 

What is melanoma in-situ? Biologically, these are intra-epidermal melanocytic proliferations that pose significant risk of progressing to invasive melanoma. Histologically, this is more difficult to define, as clinically concerning lesions are now removed at an earlier stage. Our challenge, and the focus of this presentation, is how we can re-define the concept of melanoma in-situ in the modern age.

Associate Professor Katy Bell 
& Dr Blake O'Brien

Contemporary melanoma management: A disease in rapid evolution

The management of melanoma is evolving very quickly. Where are the changes occurring? In addition to discussing the current management of melanoma, this session will look at where we are heading in the near future.

Professor Michael Henderson
