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).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
