The treatment for basal cell carcinoma, or BCC, depends on the stage of the disease, the size and area of the growth, and the patient’s general health and medical history. Dr. Patel, what can you tell us about treatment options for BCC?

Dr. Patel
Well, Dr. Mayzik, the overall goal of treatment is to destroy or remove any remaining cancer cells.

The treatments most often used for basal cell carcinoma include surgery, topical chemotherapy, and radiation therapy.

If you’re diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, your provider will discuss treatment options with you. Together you can develop the best treatment or combination of treatments for your condition.
