Basal Cell Carcinoma

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common form of skin cancer. Sunburn is the main culprit. They usually develop as small, round, raised, red or pearly coloured spots. They may become ulcerated and look like a sore that will not heal.

BCC is a locally invasive skin tumour and very rarely spread to other organs. Most BCC’s are treated surgically. Patients often develop multiple BCC’s over time.
