Basal Cell Carcinoma

A basal cell carcinoma is a form of skin cancer that originates from the basal cells of the epidermis. These basal cells reside in the lower layer of the epidermis that produces new skin cells as old cells die off. The condition presents as a slightly transparent skin bump and often occurs in the areas of the body that are exposed to the sun most. Usually, these bumps occur on the head and neck and can significantly affect one’s physical appearance and emotional state.

Basal cell carcinoma can have severe physical and psychosocial effects on a person, so early detection and treatment are vital to eliminating the cancerous cells. Our team at Surgical Dermatology Group would be happy to assist you in finding the best solution for your condition.
