Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The constant increase in new diagnoses of melanoma and the potential aggressiveness of this neoplasm make it essential to fully comprehend its biological behavior.

This Special Issue aims to collect high-quality scientific papers that deepen the clinical, histopathological and molecular characteristics, potentially correlating the prognosis of patients with melanoma, which could deepen our knowledge regarding this pathology. Identifying possible new prognostic factors could facilitate the construction of personalized follow-up schedules and contribute to identifying patients who may benefit from adjuvant treatments, with a view to rationalizing healthcare resources.

This Special Issue will include scientific papers of high scientific resonance; publications will be considered for research articles, case series, or reviews.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Cancers.
