Caption: Light micrograph of a section through human skin afflicted with a cystic basal cell carcinoma, a common skin tumour that arises from the basal cells of the epidermis. Cystic basal-cell carcinoma is characterized by dome-shaped, blue-gray cystic nodules. Although the cancer behaves malignantly by invading the underlying dermis it almost never metastasizes (spreads to other tissues). Basal cell carcinomas occur mostly on areas of skin exposed to light, particularly the face. The lesions are commonly known as rodent ulcers.
