Help Patients With Actinic Keratosis Get Appropriate Treatment

New Canadian guidelines will lead to more emphasis on managing actinic keratosis...due to rising rates of skin cancer.

These lesions are usually flat, pink or nonpigmented, 3 to 6 mm in size, and have a sandpaper-like texture. They develop on sun-damaged skin and may become cancerous if left untreated.

Patients at greatest risk of developing actinic keratosis are usually ≥ age 40 with fairer skin, blond or red hair, and light-coloured eyes...or transplant recipients.
