Because of the reported increase in nodal metastasis and decrease in disease free survival, the workup and follow up should be aggressive. Sentinel node biopsy would be a reasonable option because of the higher incidence of nodal metastasis, and this could save the patient an elective node dissection. Follow up should be considered the same as the high-risk melanoma patients. Subsequent pregnancy does not appear to affect prognosis. Selected Readings 1. 2. 3. 4.

The vast majority of these tumors are basal and squamous cell cancers. 1 lists many of the different types of NMSC. ” The primary focus of this Chapter will be on basal and squamous cell cancers. Risk Factors The incidence of NMSC has been on the rise since the 1960s. National Cancer Institute surveys showed an increase in frequency of 15-20% from 1972-1978. Exposure to ultraviolet radiation, the most important risk factor for developing NMSC, has probably been on an increase during this time period.

Merkel cell carcinoma is one of the most aggressive NMSC. Merkel cells arise from a pluripotential basal cell in the epithelium. 4 About 700 cases of Merkel cell cancer are reported in the literature. These tumors usually occur in the head and neck area, especially in the periorbital and eyelid regions. They present as a painless solitary dermal nodule. The surface is usually smooth and can have a slightly erythematous to deeply violaceous with associated telangiectasias. Lymph node metastases occur in 20% of patients at presentation, while 50% of the patients develop them at some time during the course of their disease.
