    Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC)

    What is Basal Cell Carcinoma?

    Basel Cell Carcinoma (BCC), also know as a Rodent Ulcer is the most common type of skin cancer, accounting for more than 75% of all skin cancers. Often the least dangerous and almost always completely curable by treatment. Most BCCs are slow-growing and almost never spread to other parts of the body but if left untreated they can damage or destroy the skin and surrounding tissues and cause an ulcer known as a rodent ulcer.
