Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than 500,000 new cases are reported each year, and the incidence is rising faster than any other type of cancer. When a patient is concerned about a skin lesion, dermatologists often perform the initial evaluation. A plastic surgeon is then consulted if the removal of the lesion will leave a large, noticeable defect on the skin.

There are many risk factors for the development of skin cancer. Accumulated exposure to UV radiation is the greatest risk factor. Skin cancer does occur more frequently in people with fair complexions, however, darker skinned individuals may also develop skin cancer. Heredity and environment also play a role.
