The Melanoma Handbookis a concise and comprehensive resource for anyone who treats patients with local, advanced, or metastatic melanoma in all its various forms.

Detailed chapters with numerous figures cover the pathology, treatment, and management of all presentations of melanoma, including essential clinical knowledge on staging and workup considerations. The content emphasizes both overall treatment guidelines and more nuanced applications for patient groups who have different presentations, metastases, or other complications to treatment. Tables throughout the handbook consolidate helpful classification and staging information, survival data, FDA-approved treatment regimens, and toxicity risk.

Unlike many oncology or dermatology textbooks, this reference provides a targeted overview of conventional and novel treatment strategies for all stages of malignancy and applications of practical management options.The Melanoma Handbookis essential not only for trainees managing this fast-moving disease for the first time but also oncologists, dermatologists, and surgeons who want a searchable, quick-review reference when faced with a challenging melanoma case in their practice.
