Abstract

Skin cancer incidence is increasing rapidly. We outline the indications for and advantages of diagnostic techniques and treatments, including curettage and electrodesiccation, surgical excision, Mohs' micrographic surgery, cryosurgery, radiation therapy, interferon injection, and photodynamic therapy. We describe our interdisciplinary treatment protocol for skin cancer treatment and emphasize avoidance of the sun and early treatment of photodamaged skin. This treatment includes oral retinoids, topical tretinoin (Retin-A), 5 fluorouracil, and chemical peels performed with trichloroacetic acid or phenol.
