Abstract

Purpose of Review Skin cancers, including basal cell carcinoma, cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, and cutaneous melanoma, are the most common cancer worldwide. The treatment of these cancers is primarily surgical, and when treated early and correctly, the prognosis is excellent. In this review, we aim to discuss the appropriate surgical management of skin cancers and associated controversies as it pertains to the head and neck. Recent Findings Evidences guiding treatment have expanded enormously over the past decade. Studies have drastically im- proved our understanding of skin cancer including risk factors for tumor recurrence and metastasis, indicated margin size of surgical excision, the role of sentinel lymph node biopsy, and the management of occult and gross regional neck metastasis. Summary Management of skin cancer poses a unique challenge in the head and neck region due to its proximity to anatomic sensitive areas and complex lymphatic drainage. Understanding how to efficiently manage the primary tumor site and the regional lymph nodes is paramount in minimizing locoregional recurrence and improving overall survival. . . . . .
