Basal Cell Carcinoma

The most common form of skin cancer. When found early, basal cell carcinoma can be effectively treated.

What is it?

Basal cell carcinoma not only ranks as the most prevalent type of skin cancer but also stands as the most frequently diagnosed cancer overall. Originating in the basal cells, which generate new skin cells, basal cell carcinoma typically manifests as a skin-colored, brown, black, or blue lump on the skin's surface. While individuals of all skin tones can develop this cancer, those with fair skin, inadequate sun protection practices, or frequent tanning bed usage face elevated risks. Primarily affecting sun-exposed areas like the head and neck, basal cell carcinoma tends to progress slowly and rarely metastasizes. Furthermore, it is typically curable with minimal scarring when promptly treated.


How is it treated?

When identified in its early stages, the majority of basal cell carcinomas can be effectively treated and cured, posing no significant threat to life. A typical indicator of basal cell carcinoma is a persistent, slow-growing lesion on the skin that may intermittently bleed. Our team of board-certified dermatologists offer various treatment alternatives, including topical medications, Mohs surgery, excisional surgery, cryosurgery, and laser therapy, to treat basl cell carcinoma. Schedule an appointment with one of our providers at any of our Dermatology Partners office located in Avon, Sandusky, Broadview Heights, Medina, Port Clinton, and Strongsville, Ohio, for diagnosis and treatment.
