  • Overview

    This is the first of a 2-part round-table discussion that brings together the expertise of a dermatologist, medical oncologist, and Mohs surgeon and pairs it with a first-hand account of how Jim, a cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) survivor, and his caregiver navigated the ups and downs of a rapidly-metastatic cSCC diagnosis and treatment labyrinth. In this activity, learners will explore pressing questions regarding the safety and efficacy of new systemic options for managing advanced cSCC not otherwise amenable to curative surgical strategies.
