"The purpose of this work is to introduce contemporary knowledge to

Thus, it was designed right at the outset to include various sections of several specialties. Selected experts from several specialties successfully offered their knowledge and experience.
It is my belief that the book's rich material will contribute to its
esteem by a broader specialized medical readership such as
dermatologists, surgeons, oncologists and more.
The primary aim remains the development of those reflex actions that will determine the prompt and early diagnosis and the choice of the best treatment plan applicable to each case.
The above is of significant importance given that Skin Cancer is very common and its rising tendencies during the last decades are recorded on most geographical areas of our planet as well as in our country." (Book introduction by Nikolaos G. Stavrianeas)
