The focus of the issue of "Dermatologic Surgery and Oncology," is to justify the relationship between age and basal cell carcinoma. Mark K. Silverman and his associates from the New York University (NYU) Skin and Cancer Unit review the effectiveness of a treatment reserved for the middle aged and above radiation therapy. Also there is an article by Dr. Scott Dinehart that throws light on questions related to different etiologies and susceptibilities.
