Skin cancers are increasingly common and most often diagnosed and managed by dermatologists. In this session, we will present cases of common and less common skin cancers in a multidisciplinary tumor board format. This will include specialists in medical and surgical oncology, head and neck surgery, radiation oncology, dermatopathology and dermatologic surgery. This format will facilitate discussion of various options available for managing patients with significant disease burden.
