Abstract:   (137 Views)
Nowadays, in modern medicine, there is a great tendency to use non invasive or less invasive diagnostic and therapeutic methods with high precision and effectiveness. This is also true about diagnosis and treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSCs), that the prototypes are basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) which also considered as the most common human cancers. Therefore, in this review, we present the value and diagnostic features of the dermoscopy (as an emerging and growing non-invasive dermatological evaluation tool) for approaching to NMSC. It is hoped that this study will be an infrastructure for the ever-increasing use of dermoscopy in evaluation of skin cancers, especially NMSCs.
