Basal Cell Carcinoma

One of the most common skin cancers, Basal Cell Carcinoma is caused by long-term sun exposure. Frequently, two or more features are present in one tumor. In addition, basal cell carcinoma sometimes resembles non-cancerous skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema.

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer and appears often on the head, neck, and hands as a small fleshy bump, nodule, or red patch. They do not spread quickly and are commonly found in fair-skinned people and rarely occur in dark skin tones.
