Abstract

Non-melanoma skin cancers are the most common malignancies globally. Although non-melanoma skin cancers exhibit low metastatic potential, they can be locally destructive, necessitating complex excisions and reconstructions. Mohs micrographic surgery is the gold-standard treatment for high-risk non-melanoma skin cancers in patients who are appropriate surgical candidates. Despite its efficacy, Mohs micrographic surgery is not readily available in most geographic regions, necessitating that plastic surgeons be well-versed in alternative treatment modalities for non-melanoma skin cancer. Herein, we will discuss the management of non-melanoma skin cancers in settings where Mohs micrographic surgery is not readily available.
