Nonmelanoma skin carcinoma (NSCLC) is one of the most common neoplasms in the world, and its incidence is increasing. One of the major causes of nonmelanoma skin carcinoma is repeated and prolonged exposure to the sun; the military perform their activities outdoors, are very exposed to suffering the disease. Objectives: To know the epidemiological characteristics of nonmelanoma skin cancer in military personnel. Material and Methods: A descriptive, retrospective and crosssectional study of a nonexperimental design was performed. We included 163 patients attended at a Military Hospital with clinical and histopathological diagnosis of NMSC between the years 2015 and 2016. We included Basal Cell Carcinoma (CBC) and Spinocellular Carcinoma (CPB), we analyzed variables: Age, sex, race, clinical forms and histological and anatomical locations Results: BCB was the predominant neoplasm, male (60%) and mestizo (87,7%) were the most affected. Average age of presentation 75,16 years. The nodular BBC was the most frequent clinical form (70,97%) of SCC and the invasive type of CPB (76,92%). The most common histological types Solid Basal Cell Carcinoma (49,19%) and well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma (46,15%); anatomical location most frequently affected by NSCLC, head (79,8%) and trunk (9,2%). Conclusions: The most frequent nonmelanoma skin carcinoma in military personnel is basal cell carcinoma, with the most frequent nodular clinical form.
