Basal Cell Carcinoma

What is Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC)?

BCC is the most common type of skin cancer.  It is also the least dangerous.  The vast majority of BCCs only grow on the skin and don’t spread to inside the body.

What causes Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC)?

Sun exposure is the most significant risk for developing BCC.  That is why the majority of these cancers develop on the parts of skin that get the most exposure to sun, such as the face and arms.

What will happen if I have Basal Cell Carcinoma?

While Basal Cell Carcinoma is unlikely to cause internal health issues, if left untreated it can continue to grow and cause ulcerations and destruction of nearby tissue, such as the ears or nose.

How is Basal Cell Carcinoma treated?

There are a number of ways these cancers can be treated.  The best option for you depends on a number of factors such as the location, size, and variety of basal cell carcinoma that you have.  Your dermatologist will go over all the options with you and answer your questions regarding each method of cure.
