Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Skin cancer. Basal cell carcinoma on a 76-year-old man's ear lobe. Basal cell carcinoma, one of the most common forms of skin cancer, is most often caused by over-exposure to sunlight. The cancer starts as a small flat nodule and grows slowly, eventually breaking down at centre to form a shallow ulcer that persistently bleeds. Basal cell carcinomas rarely spread to other parts of the body. Treatment involves the surgical removal of the tumour or radiotherapy.
