Basal Cell Carcinoma
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common form of cancer. It affects little less than 1 Million people in the US annually. It usually appears as a pinkish bump with overlying red vessels. It can also appear as a non-healing sore or “new mole.” The key to diagnosing a true BCC is performing a skin biopsy. Like most skin cancers damaging UV rays plays a big role in its development.
The good news is that most BCC’s are easily treated and do not change the life expectancy of the patient because they very rarely leave the skin or spread to the rest of the body. Mohs Micrographic Surgery might be the ideal treatment for this type of cancer.
Often described as a pearly growth, basal cells have excellent cure rates when detected early. Please schedule your skin check.
All skin cancers, including BCC’s, need prompt and effective treatment not to spread locally and cause damage to surrounding tissues. Therefore anyone with any new bumps, bleeding spots or sores or anyone with a history of a sun exposure should be examined carefully for skin cancers.
Dr. Kormeili can determine the best course of treatment for your skin condition after careful examination.
