Skin Tumor Markers

  • Jean-Claude Bystryn
Part of the Contemporary Biomedicine book series (CB, volume 2)


Skin cancers are the most common malignant tumors of man, constituting approximately one-third of all human cancers. The most common malignant tumors of skin are basal-cell carcinomas, and the next most common are squamous-cell carcinomas. The rarest, but most serious, is malignant melanoma. There are approximately 8000–10,000 new cases of melanoma per year in the United States, and this cancer accounts for 1% of all human cancers. A variety of other malignancies arise from specialized cells present in skin or its appendages, but these are very rare and will not be considered.
