If you have the type of skin cancer known as basal cell carcinoma (BCC), our medical providers at Skin Care Doctors can remove cancerous cells and restore your skin to optimal health.
Who Gets BCC?
Basal cell carcinoma can affect people of any age, gender, or ethnicity. Still, it is more common in people with a history of excessive sun exposure or with light-colored hair, fair skin, and blue or green eyes. Individuals with a family history of skin cancer or a weakened immune system are also at increased risk for developing BCC. People who use tanning beds often have a much higher risk of getting BCC and tend to develop it earlier in life. BCC is especially common on the face, often forming on the nose; however, it is possible to get it on any part of the body, including the trunk, legs, hands, and arms.
