Keywords: skin tumors, squamous cell carcinoma, basal, short-distance x-ray, electro-excision, cryotherapy


The article analyzes the data of 307 patients, who have solitary, primary-multiple synchronous or metachronous tumors. It considers the advantages and disadvantages of the main methods of treatment of malignant epithelial skin tumors, in particular, short-range X-ray, electro-excision, cryotherapy and scalpel excision. The authors compare treatment methods and propose modern recommendations for choosing treatment tactics based on risk groups. The short-range X-ray method is found to be the least effective compared to the other methods of treatment of malignant epithelial skin tumors.
