This article discusses the clinical presentations and subtypes of these 3 types of cancer and the current state of treatments for them. Also discussed are precursor lesions to these malignancies, including actinic keratosis, a squamous cell carcinoma precursor, and atypical or dysplastic nevus, a potential precursor of malignant melanoma.
