Basal Cell Carcinoma

Basal Cell Carcinoma

Are you fair skinned, over the age of 50 or maybe you’re a sun lover? If you answered yes to most of these questions you may be considered high risk for developing Basal Cell Carcinoma. Known to be the most common form of skin cancer Basal Cell Carcinomas emerge when there is an abnormal overgrowth of basal cells. Don’t worry though, when detected early enough this form of skin cancer can be easy to treat and cure.

Basal Cell Carcinomas usually appear on areas of the body most exposed to the sun such as the ears, neck, scalp, chest, the face, shoulders and back. These cancerous areas may appear as open sores, reddish patches or waxy growths with elevated borders. At times though, Basal Cell Carcinomas can be tricky to detect and may not always form as the above listed.
