Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a form of cancer that begins in the hair follicle. The hair follicle, which is located deep within the skin’s surface, is the site where hair grows.
Unlike most other forms of skin cancer, Basal Cell Carcinoma is not the result of a single tumor, but rather a group of cancer cells that have formed. When the hair follicle cells are affected, they cause the hair to fall out and bald patches to develop.
The hair follicle cells that are affected by cancer are also the one cells that produce new hair. These new hair cells are referred to as the melanin, or pigments. When the melanin is damaged, a new growth of melanin is formed.
The melanin cells in the hair follicle are responsible for giving the hair its color. The melanin cells are also responsible for the color and texture of the hair.
The most common symptom of cancer in the hair follicles is the appearance of bald spots on the scalp. The bald spots can appear on both men and women, however, the spots that appear on men are usually much more noticeable than the spots that appear on women.
The symptoms of basal cell carcinoma are not limited to the bald spots on the scalp. The hair can also become thin, brittle, and easily breaks, and it is common to experience inflammation and pain in the area of the scalp.
The cause of basal cell carcinoma is not yet known. However, a recent study by researchers in the Netherlands and the United States, suggests that a substance found in human papilloma virus is one of the factors responsible for the formation of the cancer.
The treatment of basal cell carcinoma is the same as for other types of skin cancer. A qualified dermatologist can advise a patient on the best treatment for the particular type of cancer.
Treatments that are used include surgery, chemotherapy, photodynamic therapy, immunotherapy, and surgery without surgery. Chemotherapy can be used in conjunction with chemotherapy to treat other types of skin cancer, such as carcinoma in situ.
Chemotherapy is used to kill off the cancerous cells. It is given through a drip or infusion into the vein or blood stream.
Chemotherapy is used to treat melanoma in situ. Chemotherapy is given to destroy the melanin cells in the scalp.
Laser therapy is used to kill melanin in the scalp, and the hair follicles. Laser therapy is similar to surgery, but it works by the use of light rays to kill melanin.
Chemotherapy is used to treat several different types of skin cancer, including squamous cell carcinoma. Chemotherapy is often combined with surgery, which is used to remove the tumor in the scalp.
Photodynamic therapy is usually used to treat basal cell carcinoma. Chemotherapy is often combined with surgery, which is used to treat several different types of skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.
Photodynamic therapy has the same effect as surgery, but it uses light rays to destroy cancer cells. It is used to treat melanoma. Chemotherapy is often combined with surgery, which is used to treat various other types of skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.
Melanoma, the deadliest type of skin cancer, is the most difficult to treat, as it usually involves a biopsy, followed by surgery. Chemotherapy is often combined with surgery to kill melanin in the skin.
