AbstractBasal cell carcinoma (BCC) followed by squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) are the two commonest cancers in white populations worldwide.1 While sharing some features, they are distinct clinically and pathologically and thus the ratio of BCC to SCC incidence rates serves as a useful composite that enables immediate comparisons of trends within and between populations. There is a widely held belief that the BCC:SCC ratio sits relatively constantly at around 4:1 in the general population, though this belief has little apparent basis.
