Answer

Given the central role that ultraviolet radiation (UVR) plays in the pathogenesis of cSCC, methods aimed at decreasing UVR exposure form the cornerstone of cSCC prevention. In addition, treatment of precancerous lesions and in situ SCC may prevent the future development of invasive lesions.
