Caption

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) scar. Stitched cheek of a 73 year old man, 1 week after surgical removal of a BCC, or rodent ulcer. 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. BCC treatments include radiotherapy, cryotherapy, cauterisation and surgical excision. For the basal cell carcinoma before removal, see image M131/772.
