The skin cancers are divided in non melanocytic skin cancers and melanoma skin cancers. The non melanocytic skin cancers are the basal cell carcinoma, the squamous cell carcinoma, merkel cell carcinoma and the adnexal tumors.
The most common are the basal cell carcinoma, the squamous cell carcinoma as well as the precancerous lesions (actinic keratoses) which develope due to the chronic and intense sun exposure especially in fair skin types.
They develope in the sun exposed areas of the skin such as the face, the scalp, the shoulders and the extremities.
Before the treatment a dermoscopical examination will guide us about the indication for biopsy. The treatment will be based on the type of cancer and can be performed with surgery in local anaesthesia or laser or cryosurgery or local immunomodulators.
