Ongoing surgical and postsurgical advances, as well as emergent factors that predispose patients to these tumors, have changed the treatment paradigm. A keen understanding of diagnostic, surgical, and nonsurgical treatment options is key to identifying, treating, or referring patients with potential cutaneous malignancies.
