Nodular infiltrative basal cell carcinoma skin cancer. Close-up of a nodular infiltrative basal cell carcinoma (BCC) on the forehead of an 50-year-old male patient. This is an aggressive form of BCC, which grows deep into the tissues. 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. Treatments for basal cell carcinoma include radiotherapy, cryotherapy, cauterization and surgical excision.
