Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Skin cancer treatment. Cut on the lip of a 78 year old woman after the excision of a basal cell carcinoma skin cancer. Also called a rodent ulcer, it is the most common form of skin cancer among fair-skinned people, mostly affecting the elderly. It usually appears on the face and is thought to be caused by the ultraviolet radiation in sunlight. It slowly destroys surrounding tissues, but seldom spreads to other parts of the body. As well as surgical excision, other treatments include cryosurgery and radiotherapy.
