Low risk Basal Cell Carcinoma

We have recently been awarded a contract to treat low risk Basel Cell Carcinoma in the community. The service will be run under the supervision of Professor Mark Goodfield, Consultant Dermatologist, with regular attendance at the local skin cancer multidisciplinary team meetings. We will be able to offer medical and surgical treatment depending on the features of the lesion.

A low risk BCC would be:

<1cm below the level of the clavicle, Superficial or nodyloulcerative with well defined margins.

Exclusion criteria:  

Patients must be >24 years old. They cannot have a genetic predisposition to skin cancer (eg Gorlins) or be immunocompromised.They must NOT be recurrent, previously incompletely excised or have indistinct borders such as morphoeic BCC.

Lesions requiring excision will be assessed initially in dermatology clinic. Non surgical options, such as Photo Dynamic Therapy and imiquimod, will be considered. If excision is required patients will be referred on to our Minor Surgery Clinic.

In the future we hope to expand this further to accept larger BCC.

Our Choose and Book page will be amended when this situation changes.
