Dr. Malvehy. Director of the Skin Cancer Unit, consultant for the Dermatology Service of the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona and RICOH, both partners of the iToBoS project, supported the webinar led by the Spanish Association Against Cancer (Asociación Española Contra el Cancer, AECC) on skin cancer. The event was held in Spanish.
The skin is the largest organ in the human body and is an organ with memory. Likewise, skin cancer, the most common type of tumour, is produced by the abnormal and uncontrolled growth of skin cells that have been altered by ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight or tanning beds, for example. This is most often manifested on skin exposed to the sun.
The webinar discussed how lesions that lead to skin tumours occur, the importance of prevention and early detection, and the benefits of the IT in their diagnosis and treatment were presented and discussed.
