Then you should probably get it checked by a dermatologist or specialized skin doctor because it could be basal cell carcinoma. You need to take the necessary treatment for basal cell carcinoma before it turns into malignant.

What is Basal Cell Carcinoma?

Basal Cell Carcinoma is one of the common forms of skin cancer accounting for approximately 85% of skin cancer in the UK.

Basal Cell Carcinoma is a slow-growing, malignant epithelial cancer that occurs in the deepest layer of the epidermis predominantly the basal cells. Pleasingly these malignant tumors have a very low growth rate and highly unlikely ever to spread to other areas and rendering them relatively harmless.

The irregular subclinical finger-like outgrowths may remain contiguous with the main tumor mass and frequently occurring over the face, head, and neck in elderly individuals. BCC tumors’ clinical appearances & morphology are diverse & include cystic, nodular, superficial, and pigmented variants.

A person can have a BCC after a long period of skin exposure to harmful UV rays of the sun.

Basal Cell Carcinoma Treatment

Surgical methods for the basal cell carcinoma treatment usually include surgical excision, curettage & cautery, cryosurgery, or Mohs micrographic surgery.

Standard excision removes the area containing cancerous growth that surrounds the normal growth region with the help of a scalpel. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia then the excised skin is stitched and examined microscopically to ensure the complete removal of malignant cells. This procedure is very effective but Mohs micrographic surgery may be required in difficult or recurrent cases especially on the nose.

Mohs micrographic surgery is the effective basal cell skin cancer treatment that entails the removal of cancer with a thin layer of surrounding tissue amalgamated with a thorough examination of the skin tissue under a microscope. The process of tissue removal & evaluation is repeated until no more cancer cells are detected. Mohs basal cell skin cancer surgery treatment has the highest cure rates and also ensures minimal removal of the normal skin area, thereby reducing morbidity, postoperative side effects, and assisting repair.
