Basal Cell Carcinoma

(BCC)

BCC is the most common form of skin cancer and the most common eyelid cancer. It is associated with sun damage.

It is the least aggressive skin cancer, is slow growing and does not spread to the rest of the body. A central ulcer with pearly edges may develop, which does not heal. If left it will damage structures in the area.

Treatment

Treatment is by excision. If small, this may be done with local anaesthetic injection in the rooms. If larger, it is usually done in day surgery with local anaesthetic and intravenous sedation (sleepy and relaxed but not general anaesthetic).
