Abstract
In 2020, we have seen patients with neglected skin cancer in the context of the COVID pandemic. But what is the global health impact of the pandemic on skin cancer patients ? Is it as high as the delayed care of a heart infarct ? To answer this question, we have confronted a theoretic, a probabilistic and a scientific approach. These analyses allow us to conclude that the impact overall was moderate. It allows to draw general guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer for future pandemics.
