Abstract

Each year, there are as many cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer as all other cancers combined. Although there is relatively low attributable mortality, the morbidity and expense of treatment is significant. Unlike many other malignancies, host and environmental factors relevant to the pathophysiology have been clearly demonstrated. Surgical ablation remains the mainstay of treatment.
