The Skin Cancer Foundation Launches Carcinomas & Keratoses Digital Publication

The Skin Cancer Foundation, the leading nonprofit organization for public and professional skin cancer education, has launched Carcinomas & Keratoses, a new digital publication that sheds light on the most recent and important developments in keratinocyte cancers and precancers, including basal cell carcinoma (BCC), cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) and actinic keratosis (AK). Featuring content written by expert dermatologists and The Skin Cancer Foundation’s editorial team, coverage includes new strategies for early detection and diagnosis to breakthrough treatments for advanced BCC and cSCC.

“We recognized a gap in knowledge that needed to be filled,” says Deborah S. Sarnoff, MD, president of The Skin Cancer Foundation. “For many years our Melanoma Letter has offered physicians the latest research and treatment techniques for melanoma. With C&K, we’re drastically expanding the topics we can cover. Our goal is to present this information in a way that appeals not only to dermatologists, physician assistants and nurse practitioners who treat skin cancer, but also to internists and specialty practitioners who are often on the periphery of skin cancer detection and treatment. This is also a wonderful resource for medical students and dermatology residents.”

The publication will live on its own platform, CarcinomasandKeratoses.org, where professionals are encouraged to sign up to regularly receive new issues. There is no cost to access Carcinomas & Keratoses. The publication was made possible through support from Sanofi and Regeneron. 

Carcinomas & Keratoses joins the Foundation’s roster of publications including The Melanoma Letter, The Skin Cancer Foundation Journal, and the Sun & Skin News blog. For more information visit SkinCancer.org.
