In the short video, Prof Argenziano looks at the dermoscopic and clinical characteristics of basal cell carcinoma (BCC), including superficial BCC and nodular BCC.

He takes us through real patient cases to highlight how a clinical examination and dermoscopy can help you identify, diagnose and treat BCCs in primary care.

Prof Argenziano also looks at how dermoscopy can guide clinicians in the management and treatment of BCCs.
