Alternate Names : Rodent ulcer, Skin cancer - basal cell, Cancer - skin - basal cell


Pictures & Images

Basal cell nevus syndrome - close-up of palm
Basal cell nevus syndrome - close-up of palm

Basal cell nevus syndrome is an inherited disorder characterized by wide-set eyes, saddle nose, frontal bossing (prominent forehead), prognathism (prominent chin), numerous basal cell carcinomas, and skeletal abnormalities. Skin manifestations include pits in the palms and soles, and numerous basal cell carcinomas. This picture is a close-up of the pits found in the palm of an individual with basal cell nevus syndrome.

Skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma - nose
Skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma - nose

The typical basal cell skin cancer appears as a small, pearly, dome-shaped nodule with small visible blood vessels (telangiectasias).

Skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma - pigmented
Skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma - pigmented

This skin cancer appears as a 2 to 3 centimeter skin spot. The tissue has become destroyed (forming an atrophic plaque). There is a brownish color because of increased skin pigment (hyperpigmentation) and a slightly elevated, rolled, pearl-colored margin. This growth is located along the hair line.

Skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma - behind ear
Skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma - behind ear

This skin cancer appears as a 1 to 1.5 centimeter flesh-colored nodule with a central depression and a raised, pearly border. Small blood vessels are visible (telangiectatic).

Skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma - spreading
Skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma - spreading

This skin cancer, a basal cell carcinoma, is 5 to 6 centimeters across, red (erythematous), with well defined (demarcated) borders and sprinkled brown pigment along the margins. This cancer is located on the person's back.

Basal cell nevus syndrome - plantar pits
Basal cell nevus syndrome - plantar pits

Basal cell nevus syndrome is an inherited disorder characterized by wide-set eyes, saddle nose, frontal bossing (prominent forehead), prognathism (prominent chin), and skeletal abnormalities. Skin manifestations include pits in the palms and soles, and numerous basal cell carcinomas (skin cancers). This picture is a close-up of the pits found on the sole of the foot of an individual with basal cell nevus syndrome.

Basal cell nevus syndrome - face and hand
Basal cell nevus syndrome - face and hand

Basal cell nevus syndrome is an inherited disorder characterized by wide-set eyes, saddle nose, frontal bossing (prominent forehead), prognathism (prominent chin), numerous basal cell carcinomas (a type of skin cancer), and skeletal abnormalities. This individual has multiple flesh-colored, dome-shaped bumps on the face which are basal cell cancers, and palmar pits.

Multiple basal cell cancer due to x-ray therapy for acne
Multiple basal cell cancer due to x-ray therapy for acne

Basal cell carcinomas are more prevalent on sun or radiation exposed areas of skin. Here the typical lesion with raised, rolled, pearly borders with ulcerated center is seen on the back of a person previously irradiated for acne.

Basal cell carcinoma - nose
Basal cell carcinoma - nose

A basal cell carcinoma near the tip of the nose is shown here. This lesion has a pearly, slightly raised border, and would likely bleed easily if traumatized.

Basal Cell Carcinoma - face
Basal Cell Carcinoma - face

This flesh-colored, verrucal, pearly, smooth, non-scaling papule is a basal cell carcinoma. It is occurring in a common, sun-exposed area of the face, on the forehead.

Basal Cell Carcinoma - close-up
Basal Cell Carcinoma - close-up

This basal cell carcinoma exhibits a characteristic of this type of lesion-telangiectasia. The lesion is also pearly, and smooth, with a slight central depression.

Basal cell carcinoma - close-up
Basal cell carcinoma - close-up

This basal cell carcinoma appears as a multicolored flat lesion, with a periphery that has ulcerated and bled. Telangiectasia are present.

Basal cell cancer

Basal cell cancer is a malignant skin tumor involving cancerous changes of basal skin cells. Basal cell skin cancers usually occur on areas of skin that are regularly exposed to sunlight or other ultraviolet radiation. Once a suspicious lesion is found, a biopsy is needed to prove the diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma. Treatment varies depending on the size, depth, and location of the cancer. Early treatment by a dermatologist may result in a cure rate of more than 95%, but regular examination by a health care provider is required to watch for new sites of basal cell cancer.
