Caption: Basal cell carcinoma. View of a basal cell carcinoma (or rodent ulcer) on the skin of a 78 year old man. The carcinoma is seen as a raised, reddened lump. Basal cell carcinomas are the most common form of skin cancer among fair-skinned people, mostly affecting the elderly. They usually appear on the face and are thought to be caused by ultraviolet radiation in sunlight. Although they slowly destroy the surrounding tissue, they seldom spread to other parts of the body. Treatments include surgery, cryosurgery or radiotherapy.
