Managing rare collision tumours

By Skin Cancer Institute |July 05, 2022

In his latest skin cancer update video, Professor Giuseppe Argenziano explores the dermoscopy of rare collision tumours, including real patient examples he has encountered in his own work.

Collision tumours are two or more benign or malignant tumours combined together. It is usually a coincidental phenomenon, rather than a causal one. Some combinations are rare.

In the short video, Prof Argenziano looks at some rare but significant examples with real patient cases to showcase the dermoscopic features and how these rare collision tumours can be managed.
