Multiple currently accepted treatments for non melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) are now available. PURPOSE: To present multimodality treatment for NMSCs and to report any side effects or recurrence during three years follow-up period.
MATERIAL AND METHODS:
This is a prospective study including 120 patients with NMSCs. Patients were subjected to different treatment modalities with follow-up for three years.
103 Patients (85.8%) were treated by surgery with or without post operative radiotherapy, 8 patients (5%) received only radiation therapy, 7 patients (5.8%) treated by shave excision followed by medical treatment (intralesional interferon for 3 months, systemic retinoids and cyclo-oxygenase inhibitor for 6 months), and 2 patients (1.7%) escaped the treatment. All patients treated by shave excision followed by medical treatment showed complete healing of all lesions 6 months after completing the course of treatment.
Alternatives to the surgical management of NMSC may be preferred under certain circumstances. Free full text
