%), and seborrheic keratosis (91%). There was a nominal trend toward higher scores in people who preferred video learning, had no history of skin cancer, and were older than 60 years of age.In this study, we found that a brief, plain-language video was effective at conveying understandable content to help subjects learn to identify common cancerous and benign skin growths while also teaching them strategies to protect against skin cancer.

Video education to improve recognition of common benign and malignant cutaneous lesions and skin cancer prevention in the public Although dermatologists strive to provide patient education on sun protection and skin cancer, approximately 90% of Americans have limited health literacy skills. Little has been written about the means to best teach all levels of learners to recognize common benign and malignant skin lesions. Earlier work found that with advancing age, adults were less able

8. Activating FGFR3 mutations cause mild hyperplasia in human skin, but are insufficient to drive benign or malignant skin tumors Full Text available with Trip Pro

Activating FGFR3 mutations cause mild hyperplasia in human skin, but are insufficient to drive benign or malignant skin tumors Fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3) activating mutations are drivers of malignancy in several human tissues, including bladder, lung, cervix, and blood. However, in skin, these mutations are associated predominantly with benign, common epidermal growths called seborrheic keratoses (SKs). How epidermis resists FGFR3 mediated transformation is unclear (...) , but previous studies have suggested that FGFR3 activation in skin keratinocytes may serve a tumor-suppressive role by driving differentiation and antagonizing Ras signaling. To define the role of FGFR3 in human normal and neoplastic epidermis, and to directly test the hypothesis that FGFR3 antagonizes Ras, we engineered human skin grafts in vivo with mutant active FGFR3 or shRNA FGFR3 knockdown. We show that FGFR3 active mutants drive mild hyperproliferation, but are insufficient to support benign

to the physical characteristics of the lesion, the patient’s demographics, presence of associated symptoms, related systemic disorders, and location and growth patterns of the lesion all give clues to adequately diagnose and treat. The accurate diagnosis of any skin lesions can be made by histologic examination of a skin biopsy.

The image below demonstrates a common benign skin lesion algorithm. Common benign skin lesion algorithm. (Concept and original organization courtesy of Scott Bangs, MD, Owatonna Clinic - Mayo Health System) Initially, benign lesions must be differentiated from malignant lesions.

Nodular skin lesions: correlation of reflectance confocal microscopy (RCM) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) features. Nodular lesions have a common clinical appearance but very different prognostic implications. The differential diagnosis between malignant and benign nodular lesions is a challenge in everyday clinical practice.

These tumors are more aggressive than BCCs and have a range of growth, invasive, and metastatic potential.

For this reason, its occurrence was initially assumed to be dependent on the cumulative UV dose. However, a proportion of BCCs, which is not negligible, also occur on “sun-protected” parts of the body, such as the torso.

20. The expression and function of miR-424 in infantile skin hemangioma and its mechanism Full Text available with Trip Pro

The expression and function of miR-424 in infantile skin hemangioma and its mechanism Infantile hemangioma is the most common benign tumor in infants. Many studies have confirmed that basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and its key receptor FGFR1 are highly expressed in hemangioma. Moreover, several miRNAs can regulate angiogenesis. In this regard, miR-424 often plays a role as tumor suppressor gene. This study was designed to investigate the mechanism of miR-424 in infantile skin hemangioma (...) . Our results showed low expression of miR-424 in infantile skin hemangioma tissues, and that miR-424 overexpression downregulated FGFR1 expression in hemangioma-derived endothelial cells, while miR-424 inhibition upregulated FGFR1 expression. Luciferase reporter analysis confirmed that FGFR1 was a target gene of miR-424. CCK-8, flow cytometry, transwell migration and tube formation assays demonstrated that miR-424 overexpression inhibited cell proliferation, migration and tube formation, at least
