Image of the Month

This new Young Oncologist project challenges your capability of diagnosis based on a striking and clinically important image.

You are presented with an image accompanied by a question giving you the opportunity to test if you can correctly identify the right diagnosis. You will then discover the diagnosis that was actually made together with a brief background to the medical history of the case.

ESMO members can rate the article and leave comments to raise questions concerning the diagnosis or share their own experience of a similar case.
