Skin cancer (non melanoma)

Men and woman discussing skin cancer

All about non melanoma skin cancers - basal cell and squamous cell skin cancers - including symptoms and causes, tests to diagnose skin cancer, treatment including surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and current research.  Living with skin cancer covers coping with your diagnosis, preventing future skin cancers and skin care.

If you are looking for information about the skin cancer that develops from abnormal moles (melanoma) this is not the right section for you. There is a separate section about melanoma.
