Detail 02

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a type of skin cancer that forms in the basal cells of the skin layer. It often looks like a small bump, but it can start as a scaly patch of skin and grow slowly above the surface of the skin.
Where the basal cell layer in the skin layer is the layer responsible for the formation of new cells in the epidermis of the skin, but the infection of this layer with cancer leads to excessive and abnormal proliferation of the cells in it, which leads to the formation of these bumps and bumps on the surface of the skin.

Signs of basal cell carcinoma

People at risk of developing basal cell carcinoma

At Excellage Clinic, we identify a number of signs and symptoms that indicate the presence of basal cell carcinoma, including:

  • Lumps, bumps, blisters, scales, or scaly surface lesions
  • The lump may be translucent (translucent) and close to normal skin color, white to pink, brown to black, or black to blue.
  • The tumor may appear shinier than the surrounding skin with small visible blood vessels.
  • The tumor may grow slowly over time.
  • The tumor may be associated with itching or pain.
  • The tumor may form an ulcer that may ooze fluid or bleed on contact.

How much can basal cell carcinoma affect anyone, but it may be common in males, especially those over 50 years of age, and it can also be common in people with light skin and light eyes, and also people who have previously had skin cancer are at greater risk of basal cell carcinoma.

Here are some questions and answers that will help you know

Where do basal cell carcinomas spread in the body?

Possible places for the formation of basal cell carcinoma include a number of areas in the body, while it abounds in the areas most exposed to the sun in the body, as we notice in the Excellage Clinic that these lesions are distributed in areas such as:

  • The face
  • Scalp
  • The nose.
  • eyelids
  • Feet
  • Ears


What causes basal cell carcinoma?

A change in your DNA causes basal cell carcinoma. This change usually occurs after your skin has been exposed to too much ultraviolet radiation from sunlight or tanning beds. Your genes give your DNA instructions for your body to make new cells to replace cells that are reaching the end of their lifespan by By copying and duplicating itself.


How is basal cell carcinoma diagnosed?

At the Excellage Clinic, the diagnosis is based on the appearance of the skin lesion. The doctor may suspect a diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma. To confirm the diagnosis, a histopathology test of the lesion can help confirm the diagnosis.

Skin biopsy: Your provider will remove a piece of the affected skin area (the lesion) for examination under a microscope.

Imaging tests: It’s extremely rare for basal cell carcinoma to spread throughout the body, but they may do an MRI or CT scan to check for cancer in the lymph nodes or internal organs.


How is basal cell carcinoma treated?

Treatment options include:

    • Electrosalting and curettage: The cancerous mass is scraped off with a curette and then burned with a special electric needle.
    • Surgery: removal of the cancerous mass or lesion with a scalpel (resection or Mohs surgery).
    • Cryotherapy or cryosurgery: Freezing the cancerous mass to remove it.
    • Chemotherapy: The use of powerful drugs to kill cancer cells in your body.
    • Photodynamic therapy (PDT): The application of blue light and a photosensitive agent to your skin.
    • Laser therapy: Using lasers (high-energy rays) to remove cancer instead of using a scalpel.
