Treatment of Facial Skin Cancer: New Concepts among Steady Bricks

Call for Papers

Nonmelanoma skin cancer is the most common cancer in white-skinned individuals with a worldwide increasing incidence. Therefore, it is an increasing problem for healthcare services worldwide, and it causes significant morbidity but with a stable or decreasing mortality rate. Facial skin cancers are a threat for patients and tricky for surgeons due to the reconstructive challenge in certain aesthetic units; hence, nonsurgical treatment is gaining popularity especially for the elderly.

It is foreseen that the collection of articles included in this special issue will provide an interesting update for physicians and a hard headed support for future directions in achieving a standardized and customized treatment plan.

We are seeking manuscripts and original research articles as well as review articles, aiming at plastic surgeons’, dermatologists’, and oncologists’ point of view on the treatment of facial skin cancer (NMSC).
