Changes to This Summary (02/05/2016)

The PDQ cancer information summaries are reviewed regularly and updated as new information becomes available. This section describes the latest changes made to this summary as of the date above.
Revised text to state that based on extrapolation of Medicare fee-for-service data to the U.S. population, it has been estimated that the total number of persons treated for nonmelanoma skin cancer in 2012 was about 3,000,000; that number exceeds all other cases of cancer estimated by the American Cancer Society for that year, which totaled about 1.6 million (cited Rogers et al., 2016 American Cancer Society, and 2012 American Cancer Society as references 4, 5, and 6, respectively).
Updated statistics with estimated new cases and deaths for 2016.
This summary is written and maintained by the PDQ Screening and Prevention Editorial Board, which is editorially independent of NCI. The summary reflects an independent review of the literature and does not represent a policy statement of NCI or NIH.
