What is Basal Skin Cell Cancer?
Basal cell carcinoma is a slow-growing malignant tumor that typically affects the skin on the face. It often develops on sun-exposed areas such as the head, neck and back of hands. Basal cell skin cancer is often seen in senior citizens, but Olansky Dermatology Associates treats patients of all ages for skin cancer. Basal cell carcinoma rarely spreads to other parts and is generally curable by surgery or radiotherapy.
