FDA OKs Esteya system for skin cancer treatment
Dermatology Times
The Food and Drug Administration has granted 510(k) clearance to Nucletron for Esteya, an electronic brachytherapy system for high-precision skin cancer treatment.

Experts: Don't rush to lymph node biopsy for thin melanomas
Skin & Allergy News
Don't recommend sentinel lymph node biopsy in patients with a melanoma depth of 0.75 mm or thinner unless there are true high-risk features, Dr. Susan Swetter advised at the annual meeting of the Pacific Dermatologic Association. Increasing numbers of patients with thin melanomas being referred for consideration of sentinel lymph node biopsy inspired some revisions in the 2013 National Comprehensive Cancer Network melanoma guidelines regarding clinical stage, patient work-up, and treatment, said Dr. Swetter, professor of dermatology at Stanford University, Calif.

Beauty under the skin
For more than a decade, Joey Jones' life was overtaken by a deep, all-consuming shame. It was a shame that kept him from swimming or sunbathing. He avoided hugging people as they might feel the scars under his shirt. At about age 18, Jones says he started to develop large raised scars resulting from the slightest nick in his skin — acne, vaccines and a small scratch. When he went to the gym, the thick scars, called keloids, would burn underneath his T-shirt. During hot weather, they would itch. Treatment of the stubborn scars has generally involved freezing them with liquid nitrogen, cortisone injections, lasers and even radiation; but, according to Dr. Thomas Ryan, while many patients experience some degree of improvement, nothing has been all that successful.
