Abstract

Even though surgery represents the gold standard for the treatment of many types of non-melanoma skin cancer, medical treatment options have been developed for superficial tumors and actinic keratoses. Drug treatment for non-melanoma skin cancer encompasses topical use of 5-fluorouracil, diclofenac, retinoids, and imiquimod. For patients who are not candidates for surgical excision or who are not amenable to surgery, intralesional injections using interferons may be a therapeutic option (see Chap. 4.1.3).
