Non-melanoma skin cancer includes basal cell skin cancer, squamous cell skin cancers and other rare types. They are the most common skin cancer, affecting up to 100,000 people in the UK every year. This type of skin cancer usually responds very well to treatment when diagnosed early so it’s important to seek assessment and diagnosis of any lumps or patches on the skin that do not heal after a few weeks.
