Basal Cell Cancer Treatment

This is a type of skin cancer that often appears as a slightly transparent bump on the skin. It occurs often on areas of the skin that are exposed to the sun, such as your head and neck. It appears as a change in the skin, such as a growth or a sore that won't heal, and gets irritated easily.

Signs and symptoms:

  • A pearly white, skin-colored or pink bump that is translucent, the lesion may rupture, bleed and scab over.
  • A brown, black or blue lesion with a slightly raised border.
  • A flat, scaly, reddish patch with a raised edge is more common on the back or chest. Over time, these patches can grow quite large.

Treatment:

  • Surgical excision in the office under local anesthetic. In this procedure, your doctor cuts out the cancerous lesion and a surrounding margin of healthy skin. 
  • Nonsurgical treatment options: Curettage and electrodessication (C and E), freezing cancer cells with liquid nitrogen (cryosurgery), Topical treatments, Photodynamic therapy, and Radiation therapy.
