(VIDEO) Her Majesty Queen Letizia of Spain Attends a Presentation of a Medical Report in Madrid.

On Monday, June 13, 2022, Her Majesty Queen Letizia of Spain arrived at the Colegio Oficial de Médicos in Madrid to attend the presentation of the medical report, Libro Blanco del Cáncer de Piel en España.

The Libro Blanco del Cáncer de Piel en España is an initiative of the Spanish Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (AEDV) that collects, for the first time in Spain, the scientific evidence for the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of the most common skin cancers in Spain.

According to the report, more than 78,000 new patients are diagnosed with skin cancer, of which almost 95% have non-melanoma skin cancer, with a clearly underestimated care burden.

The medical report establishes the bases for consensus and homogenization of patient care in Spain, with the aim of avoiding inequalities in care between Autonomous Communities or even between hospitals.

The overall recommendation is that dermatologists should be the reference specialists to treat all skin tumors.
