Prof Vernon Sondak - H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute, Tampa, Florida

Prof Vernon Sondak speaks with ecancer at the EADO 2018 congress in Barcelona about managing the uncertainty of Spitz Nevi melanoma.

Prof Sondak explains that there is a small number of atypical spitz tumours where it is difficult to determine whether it is truly benign or if it is truly cancerous, leading to confusion and uncertainty for patients and doctors.

He details that there are ways to manage the uncertainty and that, if it comes to it, they can treat the worst case scenario, which isn't always as bad as feared.
