If you see patients with skin cancer concerns in your practice, it is essential that you stay up to date with the latest guidelines in the treatment of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers including basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas.

This helpful guide prepared by Professor David Wilkinson provides an outline for the management of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers in a primary care or skin cancer practice.

The guidelines - which were prepared in August 2021 and provide the most up to date information on primary care melanoma management - cover:

  • Diagnosis: Guidelines for approaching the biopsy of a suspicious pigmented skin lesion, including evidence-based recommendations and practice points.
  • Staging: Guidelines for the staging of melanoma in situ and invasive melanoma, from stage 0 to stage 4.
  • Treatment options in primary care and when to refer to specialist care units.
