Introduction. Nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC), is the most common malignancy in humans. The incidence of NMSC is not consistently reported to cancer registries; however, an estimated million cases of NMSC were diagnosed in the United States in 1,2 The average treatment cost of NMSC in the United States from to was estimated to be $ . Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. Because non-melanoma skin cancer/keratinocyte carcinoma is so common and often curable, statistics are estimated. This is because individual cases are not usually reported to cancer registries. It is estimated that more than 3 million people in the United States are diagnosed with skin cancers each. Incidence has remained steady over the last 8 years (it had previously been increasing at a faster rate than any other malignant tumor). Melanoma accounts for.
