Locally Advanced and High-Risk Cutaneous Malignancies
The skin is composed of two layers: the more superficial and thinner epidermis and the deeper and thicker dermis. The epidermis (average thickness 0.05 mm) contains keratinocytes (basal cells and squamous epithelial cells), melanocytes, and Langerhans cells among others. Structures such as hair and glandular ducts project through the epidermis.
