Abstract

The number of Dutch people with skin cancer and its early stages is increasing. Approximately 1.4 million Dutch people over 50 have actinic keratosis - one of the pre-stages. There are various treatments for this condition, but until now, there was no consensus about which treatment was the best. Our study shows that 5-fluorouracil cream is most effectively appreciated by patients and is the cheapest treatment. One in 5-6 Dutch people get the most common form of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma. There are various treatments for the superficial form of basal cell carcinoma. In this study, 3 different non-invasive treatments are compared. We found that imiquimod was the most effective.
