Basal Cell Carcinoma Manchester
Basal Cell Carcinoma, or alternatively can be known as BCC, is the type of skin cancer most commonly identified in patients. This form of skin cancer affects millions of people each and every year around the globe.
It is frequently found on the neck or head, and often looks like pink/red patches of skin, or sores that may appear open. If left untreated, Basal Cell Carcinoma can cause permanent damage to the surrounding tissue and skin. However, it is usually not dangerous. Fortunately in most cases, the cells that have been identified as cancerous can easily be removed.
Patients that illustrate sun damaged skin, have had, or are currently experiencing skin cancers may be prescribed medications to reduce the risk of future occurrences.
If your expert skin specialist at Dermatologist Manchester detects Basal Cell Carcinoma, where the diagnosis can typically be confirmed with a biopsy, he or she will develop and advise an appropriate course of treatment for you. As each individual patient presents a different case, your treatment may involve Mohs surgery, Excisional surgery, Radiation, or various other treatment options that may be available.
