Sažetak
Non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is the most common of all cancers. BCC represents about 80% of all NMSC thus making it the most common malignancy in the fair skinned population. It is more common than all other human malignancies combined. Incidence of NMSC has been increasing over the past several decades, with an estimated 2.1 million new patients treated in the US in 2006 thus representing an enormous medical and financial burden. Known risk factors include chronic and intense ultraviolet (UV) light exposure as well as phenotypic characteristics, such as light complexion. Common sites are regions that are chronically exposed to sun such as the head, scalp and neck.The aim of this study was to obtain statistical data about the population treated for BCC in Slovenia, the type and location of BCC, and the types of treatment used.The majority of tumors were nodular (74.4%), a fifth were superficial (20.1%), 2.7% were mixed (nodular+superficial). Studies have reported different incidence rates for different subtypes. In recent years, there has been a considerable amount of effort in educating the public about skin cancer, but it is mostly oriented towards melanoma and pigmented lesions. On its own, BCC has a low risk of mortality. However, because it is often situated in sun-exposed areas such as the nose and ears and because it has a tendency to erode local tissue, it can lead to patients having extensive surgery. Therefore, early diagnosis is important for BCC as well. Raising public awareness in a way similar to that for melanoma seems reasonable.
