Study: Many think of dermatology as superficial
Chicago Tribune
The public has some misconceptions about what dermatologists actually do, according to a recent U.S. survey. "Overall, 46 percent of the participants thought that we spend the majority of our time managing skin cancer and 27 percent thought that we spend the majority of our time doing cosmetic procedures," said Dr. April Armstrong of the University of California-Davis, the study's senior author. The results show a lack of understanding of the day-to-day realities of dermatology, the researchers say, and that misperception could affect whether people get needed care for skin diseases or if adequate funding goes to dermatology research.

Investigators from Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Lebanon, New Hampshire, worked with the international research group Melanoma Genetics Consortium to conduct a study of 11,108 melanoma cases and 13,933 control cases from the United States, Australia, Europe and Israel, according to a news release. The research group evaluated seven known or suspected genetic variants in a genomewide associate study. They found a strong association between telomere length and an increased risk of melanoma.

How to fire problem patients
Dermatology Times
Dismissing a troublesome patient requires a firm stance and a soft touch, said an expert at recent The Cosmetic Boot Camp. "It's an honor and a privilege to be a physician," said Dr. Jeanine Downie, a Montclair, New Jersey-based dermatologist. Accordingly, she said, "Be respectful and professional when firing a patient. Understand that feelings may be hurt. And you don't want the patient to Internet-bomb you, which has happened to me. Try to exude positivity. I always tell them, 'It's not really you — it's me.'"
