Key features

.

• Although most NMSCs are related to UV light exposure, other factors include exposure to ionizing radiation, arsenic or organic chemicals, human papillomavirus infection, immunosuppression, and genetic predisposition 
.

• Prevention efforts are aimed at lowering incidence and mortality 
.

• NMSC, if neglected or inappropriately managed, can cause 
significant morbidity and even death 
.

• Surgery is the mainstay of treatment, but promising new modalities include immunomodulators, photodynamic therapy, and drugs that address genetic defects.
