Caption: Skin cancer. District nurse preparing to dress the tumour of an elderly patient with basal cell carcinoma, a common form of skin cancer. The cancer, seen as a red and yellow mass on the patient's outstretched hand, is too advanced to be cured but is treated with an antibacterial solution and kept covered. Basal cell carcinoma arises in the basal cells found in the deepest layers of the skin. It is treatable by surgery, cryosurgery or radiotherapy, if detected at an early stage.
