Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC)

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer. It appears in many shapes and sizes.
A BCC may look like a:

  • Shiny, pinkish patch
  • Growth that bleeds easily.
  • Won’t heal, or heals and returns.
  • Oozes or crusts over.
  • Has a sunken center, like a crater.
  • Has visible blood vessels in or around it.
  • Although rare, BCC can feel painful or itch. Usually, the only sign of BCC is a growth on the skin.
