Basal Cell carcinoma (BCC) is one of the most common types of skin cancer.
They tend to grow quite slowly and are often found in the head and neck area. BCCs are more common in people with fair skin and sun damage.
What do BCCs look like?
An early basal cell carcinoma can be very subtle, just looking like a scaling patch that will not heal, or a skin coloured bump. As BCCs grow they become more obvious and they may bleed or crust and grow into a larger lump.
How are BBCs treated?
There are a number of ways to treat basal cell carcinomas depending on the area and severity of the skin lesion.
See below for treatment options.
