Our glossary gives you detailed information on the treatments physicians currently use for skin cancers and precancers. These include basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas and melanomas, as well as precancerous actinic keratoses and atypical moles. We’ve divided the glossary into two sections:
- Medications: topical therapies and drugs that are injected, infused intravenously or taken orally.
- Procedures: surgeries, laser and light-based treatments and radiation therapy.
