Caption: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) scar. Face of a 90 year old woman 6 weeks after having a BCC, or rodent ulcer, removed from her nose and reconstructive surgery. BCC is the most common form of skin cancer among fair-skinned people. It usually appears on the face and is thought to be caused by the ultraviolet radiation in sunlight. It slowly destroys surrounding tissue, but rarely spreads to other parts of the body. Treatment includes radiotherapy, cryotherapy, cauterisation and surgical excision. For the nose prior to removal of the carcinoma, see image M131/765 and for the nose immediately after surgery, see image M131/766.
