Basal Cell Carcinoma

Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC)  is a skin cancer that develops in the basal layer of the skin—deeper than the surface layer. Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of cancer worldwide and is associated with chronic sun exposure. Though BCC seldom spreads to other parts of the body, it can be disfiguring if not treated early. Basal Cell cancers are curable.
