Basal Cell Carcinoma Complications

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer; nevertheless, it rarely causes complications. However, if left untreated or poorly treated, it can give rise to metastases. Certain forms of basal cell carcinoma can become very dilapidated and invade nearby muscles, nerves and bone. In addition, although controversial, basal cell carcinoma can increase the risk of developing squamous cell carcinoma or malignant melanoma.
