ABC of Skin Cancer
The ABC of Skin Cancer is designed to boost GP confidence in the diagnosis and referral of skin cancer, focusing on differential diagnosis and common pitfalls. In line with the latest NICE guidelines in the UK, this book outlines best practice management in primary care, whilst also covering the Australian perspective on this cancer. Chapters on non-surgical treatment and prevention are also included.
This new highly illustrated title in the successful ABC series provides a concise, factual and practical overview of skin cancers and pre-cancerous lesions for general practitioners, junior doctors and medical students.
