What Is Basal Cell Carcinoma?

Battling a progressive disease begins with being armed with essential information.

Basal cell carcinoma or basal cell cancer (BCC) is the most common type of skin cancer. The American Cancer Society notes that about 8 in 10 skin malignancies are basal cell carcinomas. When evaluated under a microscope, the cells in these cancers resemble cells in the lowest layer of the epidermis (basal cell layer).

BCC almost never spreads (metastasizes) beyond the original tumor site. Only in rare cases can it invade other parts of the body and become life-threatening. However, BCC should not be taken lightly since it can disfigure your appearance without prompt treatment.

Basal Cell Carcinoma Symptoms

BCC often appears as a transparent bump on the skin, though it can take many other forms. Bumps or lesions occur most often on areas of the skin that receive direct sun exposure, such as your head and neck.

Conversely, you can get them on any part of your body, including your legs, arms, and torso. If you have fair skin, your chances of getting basal cell cancer are higher.

Signs of basal cell carcinoma may include:

  • A bump that appears pearly white, skin-colored, or pink
  • A black, brown, or blue lesion with a slightly raised and shiny border
  • A white, scar-like lesion (morpheaform basal cell carcinoma)
  • A flat, scaly, reddish patch that enlarges over time

Always consult your doctor for a diagnosis and to improve your basal cell carcinoma prognosis.

Causes of Basal Cell Carcinoma

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation found in sunlight and commercial tanning beds are thought to be the leading causes of basal cell carcinoma. However, chronic sun exposure does not explain skin cancers that develop on skin not ordinarily exposed to UV light.

In addition to sun exposure and having fair skin, other factors that can contribute to the development of basal cell carcinoma are:

  • Exposure to radiation therapy
  • Use of immunosuppressive drugs
  • A personal or family history of skin carcinoma
  • Inherited syndromes that cause skin cancer
  • Exposure to arsenic and other carcinogens

Take note that not all men and women with risk factors develop BCC, and not everyone without risk factors is immune to the disease.

Diagnostic Tests for Basal Cell Carcinoma

The only way to diagnose cancer of the skin, including basal cell carcinoma, is with a skin biopsy. Your dermatologist will remove a small portion of tissue from the suspicious area, in which he or she will examine under a microscope. A skin biopsy is also an essential procedure to determine the best treatment plan for your case.
