Basal Cell Carcinoma

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common skin cancer in humans, with approximately 3.5 million cases diagnosed annually. BCC typically appears on sun-exposed skin and looks like a flesh-colored or pink bump, or a sore that bleeds and does not heal. There is great variability in its location and appearance. When diagnosed by biopsy, basal cell carcinoma is usually surgically removed; however, immunotherapy and photodynamic therapy can often be used successfully. Occasionally, MOHS micrographic surgery for BCC in cosmetically sensitive areas or radiation therapy for large BCC is indicated.
