Introduction: Skin cancer, the melanoma type of which causes high mortality, is the most common malignancy in Iran and all over the world. UV is the most important cause of the incidence of this disease. This study evaluates the frequency of different types of cancer and their trajectory in Ilam province from 2012 to 2011. Materials and Methods: This analytical-descriptive study covered and evaluated all skin cancer patients who were registered in Ilam Province Cancer Registry during 20002 to 2011. Required information of each individual patient, such as age, sex, residence, pathological type of skin cancer, the location of the incidence of the disorder, and the year, was collected and studied. Findings: Out of total 347 cases, 240 cases (69.2) were diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma (BCC), 63 cases (18.2) with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), 16 cases (4.6) with malignant melanoma (MM), 8 cases (2.3) with metastatic cancer, and 20 cases (37.7) with other skin cancers. Mean age of patients was 62/42 +/- 16/11 years, and the majority of them (37.7) were men and lived in the city. Face was the most common place of the incidence of this disease (81.6) and hand was the least common one (1.7). The rate of incidence of cancer has experienced considerable growth in men and a slight decrease in the case of women between 2002 and 2011 in Ilam. Conclusion: According to the results of this study, the rate of skin cancer has increased among men during the studied period; thus, necessary measures are required to prevent and reduce the incidence of this disease, especially in people who are exposed to the sun's ultraviolet rays because of their jobs.
