Updated: ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines

Cutaneous melanoma is the most common type of melanoma, and UV exposure is one of the main risk factors. The updated ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines on cutaneous melanoma include information on diagnosis and staging, as well as stage-matched treatment strategies for locoregional and systemic metastatic
(stage IV) disease.


New: ESMO E-Learning module

Oesophago-gastric junction adenocarcinoma incidence is increasing. In the educational arena it is usually covered together with gastric cancer so there is little material available focusing on oesophago-gastric junction cancer. The added value of this E-learning module lies in the fact that it is fully dedicated to this topic, and is further enhanced by carefully balanced expertise.

The authors cover epidemiology, definition, classification, staging and risk assessment, as well as practice recommendations for treatment, including curative treatment strategies. 

The module was p
repared by Elisa Fontana and David Cunningham.
