Basal cell carcinoma typically occurs in areas of chronic sun exposure. They are usually indolent in nature with slow progression. Diagnosis is initially clinical but biopsy of the lesion may be required. Mortality is low as the tumour rarely metastasises. Recurrent tumours have poorer cure rates than primary tumours. Basal cell carcinoma must be differentiated from Molluscum contagiosum, intradermal naevus, fibrous papule, psoriasis, discoid eczema, solar keratosis melanoma.
