Introduction: The overall incidence is still lower in India, possibly due to high melanin content in Indian skin but cases of skin tumors are identified. This study was undertaken to evaluate the different histopathological types of skin tumors in a tertiary care hospital.
Method: All the specimens were received in Histopathology section of Pathology department of B.J. Medical College and Civil Hospital, Ahmedabad from a period of two years extending from July 2018 to August 2020.
Result: Out of the total 100 cases of skin tumors, 61 were diagnosed to be as benign and 39 were diagnosed as malignant. The study showed there was male predominance with male to female ratio of 1.27:1.
Conclusion: Histopathology is the gold standard to identify the architectural pattern of tumor and growth of infiltration due to its therapeutics and prognostic implications.
