Basal Cell Carcinoma Information and Treatment

Basal cell cancer, sometimes called non-melanoma skin cancer , usually appears as a small, fleshy bump or nodule on the head, neck, or hands. In the United States, basal cell cancer accounts for 90 percent of all skin cancers in the southern states, and 47 percent in the northern states. Fair skinned people over age 50 are most commonly affected it is rare among those with dark skin.  Risk is increased for individuals with a family history of the disease and a high cumulative exposure to UV light via sunlight or, in the past, carcinogenic chemicals especially arsenic . Treatment is with surgery , topical chemotherapy , x-ray, cryosurgery, photodynamic therapy. It is rarely life-threatening but if left untreated can be disfiguring, cause bleeding and produce local destruction (eg., eye, ear, nose, lip).
