BACKGROUND
Nonmelanoma skin cancers (NMSC) constitute the largest group of skin cancers. In this study, NMSCs were analyzed retrospectively.
METHODS
Between June 2013 and March 2017, demographics and comorbidities of patients underwent reconstructive surgery for NMSC; their risk factors, types, diameters, differentiation, localizations, follow-up times, treatment methods and complications were compared and statistically analyzed.
RESULTS
Totally, 163 tumors [111 basal cell carcinoma and 52 cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC)] were excized from 148 patients (63 females, 85 males). Mean age was 70.8 years. Fitzpatrick skin types were between 2-4 and 74 patients. Comorbidities were detected in 63 patients. Tumors were mostly localized in head and neck regions. Forty two lesions in cSCC group were good and 10 were medium differentiated. Defects were reconstructed with flaps in 108 patients. Others underwent primer suturation and grafting. Mean follow-up time was 16.2 months. There was not any complication except one graft failure. There were not significant statistical differences between two groups in terms of skin type, comorbidity, tumor size, fallow-up time and gender values. Conversely, differences of risk factor and age values between the groups were significant. There was a positive correlation between the tumor diameter and poor differentiation in cSCC group. Moreover, there was a negative correlation between tumor size and skin type values in groups.
CONCLUSION
Our results are quite different from literature needing further multicentric studies on NMSC to clarify the difference.
