Skincare for Cancer Patients and Survivors: US Cutaneous Oncodermatology Management (USCOM) – A Practical Algorithm


The US Cutaneous Oncodermatology Management (USCOM) project aims to improve cancer patients’ and survivors’ quality of life by offering tools for preventing and managing cancer treatment-related cutaneous toxicities.

The USCOM panel of clinicians who treat cancer treatment-related cutaneous CAEs developed, discussed, and reached a consensus on statements and an evidence-based algorithm supporting prevention, treatment, and maintenance using OTC skincare measures. The algorithm focuses on skincare measures to prevent and treat cutaneous toxicities using prevention measures and a skincare regimen involving hygiene, moisturization, sun protection, and camouflage products. The algorithm aims to improve patient outcomes and sought to determine the best approach for oncology skincare programs for all stakeholders in the US health care setting. These include medical oncologists, family practice/internal medicine physicians, dermatologists, oncology nurses, advanced practice providers (APPs), nurse practitioners (NP), physician assistants (PA), and pharmacists.

Vivian Bucay, MD, FAAD

San Antonio is home to Dr. Vivian Bucay and her husband, cardiologist Moises Bucay, and their three daughters. Recognized nationally and internationally for her expertise in her combination approach in minimally invasive facial rejuvenation, Dr. Bucay is considered to be one of the pre-eminent dermatologists in the country. Her credentials span a wide scope of biomedical research, patient care, and medical education.

Licensed in both the United States and Mexico, Dr. Bucay is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the Johns Hopkins University, completing her undergraduate studies in 1983 while serving as a research assistant at the Johns Hopkins Oncology Center. She earned her MD in 1987 from Houston-based Baylor College of Medicine. After completing an internship in pediatrics in 1988, Dr. Bucay began a residency in dermatology at The University of Miami School of Medicine, which she then completed at the Baylor College of Medicine in 1991.

In private practice since 1991, Dr. Bucay is part of the volunteer faculty of the UT Health Science Center San Antonio as a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Physician Assistant Studies. Dr. Bucay serves as faculty on several continuing medical educational initiatives in the USA. She is sought for speaking engagements and has been featured as a keynote speaker across the globe on a wide scope of topics ranging from innovations in facial aesthetics to evidence-based skin care to cancer survival.

A personal battle with stage 4 melanoma, has enabled Dr. Bucay to connect with her patients in a unique way. Dr. Bucay’s patient empathy is borne of the mental, social, and physical challenges she experienced as a patient in her fight with cancer, a journey that began in May 2006.  Cancer-free since August 2007, her victory has been an inspiration to her patients. Her goal continues to be to thrive, not just to survive.

Passionate about skin wellness, Dr. Bucay has been featured as a skin expert in several publications, including Allure, Cosmetic Surgery Times, Elle, More, Shape, Prevention, New Beauty, Men’s Health and Good Housekeeping.  Since 2004, Dr. Bucay has been recognized yearly as a Texas Super Doctor by Texas Monthly Magazine. Dr.  Bucay is a Distinguished Physician Member of the Liquid Face Lift Association and is the author or co-author of many publications and is involved in several studies evaluating emerging cosmeceuticals.

Deeply committed to her family and patients, when time allows, Dr. Bucay’s interests include travel and art, and she is proud to support San Antonio’s talented artists. Most of all, she is grateful for the love and support of her amazing family and wonderful friends.
