Caption: Skin cancer nose surgery. Clip 13 of 72. Close-up of a surgeon cauterizing blood vessels after excising a basal cell carcinoma (BCC) from the nose of a female patient. After the bleeding has been stopped, the skin on the nose and forehead will be cut open to produce a skin flap. This skin flap will be repositioned and stitched into place to cover the circular area where the cancer has been removed. This surgery is carried out under local anaesthetic. BCC is a common form of skin cancer, most often caused by over-exposure to sunlight. It grows slowly and rarely spreads to other parts of the body. The entire sequence (K002/9714 to K002/9785) shows the drawing of the incision lines (9714 to 9716), injection of local anaesthetic (9717 to 9722), BCC excision (9723 to 9725), wound cauterization (9726 to 9728), flap surgery (9729 to 9745), flap stitching (9746 to 9782), and taping the stitched wound (9783 to 9785).
