Basal Cell Carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer, it comes from the lowest part of the top layer of skin. It often, but not always, occurs in sun exposure areas and the typical presentation is as an area that does not heal or keeps scabbing and bleeding. They are usually slow growing and remain a local skin problem; having them spread around the body is extremely rare. They do not become melanoma or any other type of cancer. There are many treatments available depending on the type of Basal Cell Carcinoma, its size and where it is located. Mohs surgery is often used for Basal Cell Carcinoma on the face.
