Using focus group and cognitive interviews with organ transplant recipients, the investigators developed interactive workbooks: a) prevention by sun protection b) early detection by skin self-examination (SSE). The investigators hypothesis is if the patient learns by acquiring skills in a favorable environment, then the patient may reduce their anxiety, enhance self-efficacy and perform self-management by SSE and sun protection. The investigators also evaluate existing internet sources of primary and secondary prevention of skin cancer for organ transplant recipients.

The purpose of this study is to further test a combination chemotherapy regimen for the treatment of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck and to see if the addition of supportive m...
Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Head and Neck (SCCHN) is a devastating illness, the treatment of which is associated with significant morbidity. This type of cancer affects 43,000 individua...
The gold treatment for local invasive cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma is surgical excision. Nevertheless, surgery is not always an option as a consequence of the age and/or the health st...
A few cases of pigmented squamous cell carcinoma affecting the skin and the ocular and oral mucosa of the elderly have been described in the literature. The disease manifests itself as papular and nod...
Overexpression of keratin 17 (K17) is highly associated with poor prognosis in squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the cervix. This study was performed to (1) determine whether K17 may be a prognostic bi...
Marjolin' s ulcer, an aggressive ulcerating squamous cell carcinoma, is a well-known phenomenon that occurs in chronically inflamed or scarred tissue; however, squamous cell carcinoma arising in the a...
We report a case of squamous cell carcinoma originated from a sacrococcygeal tailgut cyst in a 73-year-old female patient. Tailgut cysts are generally multilocal and have a layer of either columnar, s...
Skin squamous cell carcinoma is the second most common non-melanoma skin tumor worldwide. Most skin squamous cell carcinoma patients have underlying diseases. Here, we reported that a 56 year-old pa...
A carcinoma derived from stratified squamous epithelium. It may also occur in sites where glandular or columnar epithelium is normally present. (From Stedman, 25th ed)
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A mixed adenocarcinoma and squamous cell or epidermoid carcinoma.
Unusual tumor affecting any site of the body, but most often encountered in the head and neck. Considerable debate has surrounded the histogenesis of this neoplasm; however, it is considered to be a myoblastoma of, usually, a benign nature. It affects women more often than men. When it develops beneath the epidermis or mucous membrane, it can lead to proliferation of the squamous cells and mimic squamous cell carcinoma.
A skin carcinoma that histologically exhibits both basal and squamous elements. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
