Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Although skin cancer is less common in persons of color than in Caucasians, the rates of morbidity and mortality associated with skin cancer often are significantly greater in darker-skinned ethnic groups. This article reviews special considerations in the approach and management of nonmelanoma skin cancer in patients of color.
