A non-surgical approach to nonmelanoma skin cancer – part 2

In the first part of our two-part article published in Dermatology in practice Vol 20 No 1, the importance of primary and secondary prevention of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) was discussed. In this second part, we focus on the management of pre-cancerous lesions, such as actinic keratosis (AK), and the most common forms of NMSC in the UK: basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). We discuss both established treatments and newly emerging therapies, as well as their potential benefits and adverse effects.
