Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC), or rodent ulcer, on a 74 year old man's ear. This 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. Treatments for basal cell carcinoma include radiotherapy, cryotherapy, cauterisation and surgical excision.
