Nonmelanoma skin cancers (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma) are the most common malignancies in the United States. Both basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas commonly occur on sun-exposed skin areas. The strongest risk factors for melanoma are a family history of melanoma, multiple benign or atypical nevi, and a previous melanoma. Cutaneous T-cell lymphoma is a non-Hodgkin lymphoma characterized by expansion of malignant T cells within the skin. The most common clinical presentations are mycosis fungoides and Sézary syndrome.
