Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is the most ubiquitous mutagen known and as a direct result the skin is by far the most common site for cancer in Caucasian populations. In United Kingdom, non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is the most frequent occurring cancer registration with over 98,854 cases in 2008, although estimates place it higher due to underreporting (CRUK, 2011a). Approximately three-quarters of NMSC are benign basal cell carcinomas (BCCs), while the remaining quarter consists predominantly of cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas (cSCC). NMSC accounts for 1 in 4 skin cancer deaths, the majority of which is attributed to the more malignant cSCC (Office for Natio...
