Local spread a problem in BCC

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer. It is a slow-growing tumour that invades and destroys surrounding tissues. Although the tumour does not spread via lymph nodes, it spreads locally and causes damage. The distance to the closest resection margin is an important predictor of recurrence and is most common for basal cell carcinoma on the nose and nasolabial fold. It has to be differentiated from squamous cell carcinoma.
