Basal Cell Carcinoma
Basal Cell Carcinoma, or BCC as it can otherwise be known, is the most frequently identified type of skin cancer recognised in patients. This particular form of skin cancer affects millions of people every year around the world.
It is commonly found on the head or neck area, and often appears as pink/red patches of skin or sores that may look open. If this is not addressed as soon as possible it can result in permanent damage to the surrounding tissue and skin. However for most individuals it is usually not dangerous. Fortunately, and in most cases, the cancerous cells that have been correctly identified can easily be eliminated.
Patients that are displaying sun damaged skin, have previously had, or are experiencing current skin cancers may be prescribed medications to lower the risk of occurrences in the future.
If your skin specialist expert at Dermatologist Glasgow suspects Basal Cell Carcinoma, where a biopsy can typically confirm a diagnosis, he or she will advise and develop an appropriate course of treatment for you. As each individual patient presents a different case, your treatment may involve Excisional surgery, Mohs Surgery, Radiation, or a variety of other treatment plans that may be available.
