Skin cancer is the most common form of human cancer. There are two types: melanoma and keratinocyte carcinoma (previously referred to as non-melanoma skin cancer).
Around 97% of skin cancers are keratinocyte carcinoma, comprising mainly of basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) or cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (cSCCs).
There are around 2-3 million new cases of Non Melanoma Skin Cancers recorded every year around the world – a figure that continues to rise. In the UK alone there are more than 100,000 new cases annually.
