Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is the second most common skin cancer, accounting for 20% of all cutaneous malignancies, and has an increasing incidence in the elderly as well as in the younger population. Although most cSCC is treated with simple therapeutic procedures, advanced cSCC can lead a significant risk for morbidity, negative impact on quality of life, and death. Proper management includes distinguishing between high-risk and low-risk lesions and determining treatment accordingly. A collaboration of multidisciplinary Italian experts has given birth to these recommendations on cSCC diagnosis and management, based on a critical review of the literature, existing European (EADO- EDF-EORTC) guidelines and the expert's experience. Topics covered include diagnostic path and histopathologic assessment, tumor staging, surgical and nonsurgical procedures, follow-up and management of localized and advanced disease.

Abstract

Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is the second most common skin cancer, accounting for 20% of all cutaneous malignancies, and has an increasing incidence in the elderly as well as in the younger population. Although most cSCC is treated with simple therapeutic procedures, advanced cSCC can lead a significant risk for morbidity, negative impact on quality of life, and death. Proper management includes distinguishing between high-risk and low-risk lesions and determining treatment accordingly. A collaboration of multidisciplinary Italian experts has given birth to these recommendations on cSCC diagnosis and management, based on a critical review of the literature, existing European (EADO- EDF-EORTC) guidelines and the expert's experience. Topics covered include diagnostic path and histopathologic assessment, tumor staging, surgical and nonsurgical procedures, follow-up and management of localized and advanced disease.
