Selecting the RIGHT Patient for Systemic Therapy in cSCC: A Care Team Forum

Program Overview

The recent approval of the first immunotherapeutic agent for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is changing the way healthcare providers treat patients with inoperable cSCC. In this roundtable discussion, a survivor of cSCC draws upon his experience with the cancer when surgery and chemotherapy failed him, as our multidisciplinary faculty panel focus on how to optimally select patients with cSCC for treatment with immunotherapy.
