We managed 71 cases of skin carcinomas during the period 2008-15. The cases were included from two different Institutes. The commonest carcinoma was basal cell (40 cases) followed by squamous cell (26 cases) 4 cases were malignant melanoma and one was sebaceous carcinoma. All cases were examined clinically and all were subjected to FNAC (Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology) and wedge biopsy. Metastatic workup was done by X-Ray Chest, CT Scan and bone scan wherever indicated. Surgery was the main stay of treatment in our study.   Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy were given in appropriate cases. Cases have been followed up for 1 to 7 years, 2 cases of malignant melanoma died due to secondaries. The rest of the cases are under our follow-up.

Key Words: Basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma - surgery.
