Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) scar. Face of a man after having a BCC, or rodent ulcer, removed from his 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.
