What's New in Advanced CSCC Care

The Evidence So Far: Risk, Referral, and What's New in Advanced CSCC Care


Activity Info

In this activity, listen to CSCC expert Dr. Michael Wong discuss how to recognize risk for CSCC in your patients, as well as the emerging treatment options that are changing the way patients with CSCC are treated. Later, he is joined by Dr. Chrysalyne Schmults to review a patient case and discuss the optimal approach to multidisciplinary care for the patient.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the activity, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the presentation, diagnosis, and spectrum of CSCC
  • Recognize patients at increased risk for locally advanced/metastatic CSCC
  • Identify patients with CSCC who are likely to benefit from referral to/consultation with providers or a multidisciplinary team with expertise in advanced skin cancer
  • Describe emerging treatments for more advanced cases that may require a systemic approach

Statement of Need:
Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (CSCC) is the second most common form of human cancer, and its incidence is on the rise. While most CSCC can be cured with office-based therapy, locally advanced/metastatic cases pose a significant risk for morbidity, impact on quality of life, and death. Treatment options have expanded to include newer immunotherapies, which hold new promise for patients with advanced disease. Both dermatologists and oncologists are involved in the management of locally advanced/metastatic CSCC, and both specialties face several challenges in optimizing care. In this education, learners will hear both perspectives on managing and treating CSCC.
