AbstractMelanoma is one of the most common cancers, with an increasing incidence worldwide. Disease stage represents the most important prognosis factor; therefore, early diagnosis is essential for melanoma patients ’ survival rates. Following the outbreak in China, the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has spread all over the world and the majority of dermatological visits have been postponed. These measures could cause a delay in melanoma diagnosis and management leading to an increase of morbidi ty, mortality and healthcare costs. Herein we propose an alternative model of skin cancer screening and the o...

It is increasingly important to provide the optimal management for patients with different non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC). NMSC surgery has almost completely ceased over recent weeks. This is affecting already overstretched radiotherapy departments, with increasing numbers of patients being referred for definitive radiotherapy. Capacity and demand analysis and forecasting are taking place almost daily in radiotherapy departments across the UK in an attempt to manage this.
