Basal Cell Carcinoma

basalBasal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer and appears frequently on sun exposed skin as a small, fleshy bump, nodule, or red patch. Other parts of the body may be affected as well. Basal cell carcinomas can occur in any individual but tend to be more common in individuals with fair skin.

Untreated, the cancer often will begin to bleed, crust over, heal, and repeat the cycle.  If neglected, Basal cell carcinoma can extend below the skin to the bone and nerves, causing considerable local damage.
