Unlike many types of cancer, basal cell carcinoma prognosis is not heart breaking, especially if it is diagnosed early, and treated with appropriate therapies. Most basal cell carcinomas are treated successfully. In fact, the recurrence risk of basal cell carcinoma after treatments is low. However, if left untreated or poorly treated, basal cell carcinoma can lead to serious complications or death.
It is important that you do a self examination of your skin regularly to detect any changes in your skin. This practice can help you detect skin cancer in their genesis and prevent complications. See your doctor if you discover signs related to basal cell carcinoma or any type of skin cancer.
