Basal Cell Carcinoma
Basal Cell Carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer and is the slowest growing and the least invasive. While basal cell carcinoma can extend into the local nerves and cause local damage, it rarely moves to other parts of the body. Though it is the slowest growing and least likely to spread to other parts of the body, it is important to get it removed before it causes any further local damage. If caught early, the cure rate for basal cell carcinoma is very high. There are a few treatment options for this type of cancer. These treatment options depend on the size and location of the cancer and can be discussed with your dermatologist.
