Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) is the most common type of skin cancer in the United States.
Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) is a type of skin cancer that affects the basal cells, which are the cells located in the lower layer of the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin). BCC is the most common form of skin cancer and is often caused by long-term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or indoor tanning.
If you have any concerns about skin changes or symptoms of BCC, it is important to speak with a healthcare provider to determine the best course of treatment for your individual needs. Early detection and treatment can greatly improve the outcome and prognosis for those affected by BCC.
