Basal Cell Carcinoma – Eyelid & Face Skin
What is Basal cell carcinoma?
Basal cell carcinoma is the one of the most common forms of skin cancer. These cancers are slow growing and generally do not spread to other parts of the body. Nonetheless they can cause harm by growing and pervading the adjacent tissue.
Predisposing factors for Basal Cell Carcinoma:
Two most important factors that play part in the development of Basal Cell Carcinomas are, sun exposure and light coloured skin. The chief cause of skin cancer is Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sun. The area of the body that is most likely to get affected with basal cell lesions is the face.
Most skin cancers appear after the age of 50 however, avoidance of exposure to sunlight should be practised since childhood, as sun’s damaging effects start in a quite early age .
A Basal cell carcinoma usually begins as a small, bump that appears dome- shaped and shiny. Tiny, superficial blood vessels cover this bump. Some of the basal cell carcinomas have melanin pigmentin them which makes them appear dark.
How can a case of Basal cell carcinoma managed?
