About this course
Skin cancer is one of the most common malignancies worldwide accounting for approximately 40% of all neoplasms among Caucasians. Although less prevalent among people of color, it portends a worse prognosis as diagnosis is often delayed when the cancer is already at an advanced stage. Thus, early detection and diagnosis is of vital importance.
