What is Basal cell carcinoma (BCC)?
Basal cell carcinoma, also known as rodent ulcer is the commonest type of skin cancer, accounting for 75% of all skin cancers. It is a slow growing patch or bump or non-healing ulcer which may sometimes bleed, ooze or form a scab or crust. It typically causes no symptoms, but may sometimes cause tenderness or pain. BCCs don’t tend to spread to other parts of the body, but it is important to treat it early as if left untreated, it will increase in size, grow deeper with the potential to affect muscle and bone and cause disfigurement. As with all new growths on the skin, BCCs tend to cause people concern and some degree of anxiety. However, it is important to note that the vast majority of BCCs carry an excellent outcome and prognosis particularly when diagnosed correctly and treated early.
