Actinic keratoses are premalignant lesions that occur in sun exposed skin. 25% of Americans will develop these. Treatment can be medical, with 5FU or Picato, or surgical with cryotherapy or surgery. We discuss these "lesions" as well as a new treatment for chest actinic keratoses. My guest was Dr. Robert Grant, chief of plastic surgery at Columbia and Cornell - we spoke about "distracted surgery" and also about finding truthful medical information on the internet. Finally, we discussed rejuvenation after chemotherapy. Whew!
