Basal Cell Carcinoma

A common form of skin cancer (90 percent of the cases), basal cell carcinoma may grow slowly at first, but like other malignant cancer cells, can spread to other parts of the body (metastasize). It is estimated that 500,000 new cases of this type of non-melanoma skin cancer occur in the United States each year with about 2,000 deaths annually.
