Skin cancers are the most common cancer type, affecting more people each year than all other cancers combined. Skin cancers include several different types of malignancies. The majority of skin cancers are in the category of non-melanoma skin cancers. This section is focused on non-melanoma skin cancers. Melanoma, another common skin cancer, is discussed in a separate melanoma section.

When skin cancer is caught early, it is highly treatable, but accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment by experienced experts is essential for optimal outcome and cosmetic result.
