Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is the second most common skin cancer in the U.S.; however, optimal identification and management of patients with high-risk features associated with recurrence or advanced cSCC can be complex and requires the expertise of multiple specialists.
This publication maps out effective practices in multidisciplinary cSCC management. Included are three care models from regionally diverse cancer programs located in areas of high cSCC prevalence.

Rockville, MD – Due to the rarity of advanced cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC), staying current with the latest information on diagnosing, treating, and supporting patients with this diagnosis can be challenging for clinicians who do not often encounter advanced cSCC in practice. To support the multidisciplinary cancer team in treating patients with cSCC, the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC)—in partnership with the AIM at Melanoma Foundation (AIM)—has developed resources through its Multidisciplinary Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma Care education project. Under the guidance of an expert advisory committee—ACCC has created a robust compendium of resources, peer-to-peer learning opportunities, and real-world examples of effective practices in diagnosing, testing, and treating this patient population.
