Basal Cell Carcinoma


Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) is the most common skin cancer worldwide. Basal Cell Carcinomas are caused by environmental factors including sunlight and genetic factors. There are different variants of BCC's, which reflects the biological behaviour of the cancer.


If left untreated BCC's will grow and cause local structural damage and disfigurement. Sometimes a diagnosis of a BCC may require a biopsy. There are many treatments available for BCC's including Standard Surgical excision or Mohs Micrographic Surgery.
