Optimal treatment for periorificial high risk non-melanoma skin cancer
Non-melanoma skin cancer incidence is rapidly rising worldwide. When surgery is not feasible (e.g. poor performance patient, significant co-morbidities), or could result in unacceptable functional and / or cosmesis morbidity, radiotherapy can offer an excellent and versatile non-surgical option. Radiotherapy can be delivered as external beam or brachytherapy. In this debate expert speakers from surgical and radiation specialities will provide arguments for the surgery and radiotherapy in the management of NMSC, with emphasis on the need of multidisciplinary cooperation. The debate will be focused on two highly cosmetically sensitive facial locations: lip and nose. The debate will be supported by published results and guidelines in the field.
