It depends on the type, location, and size of the cancer. Contact a location nearest you for treatment options.

Basal cell carcinoma

This is the most common cancer of any type. They usually develop on sun-exposed areas, especially the head and neck. Basal cell carcinoma was once found almost entirely in middle-aged or older people. Now it is also being seen in younger people, probably because they are spending more time out in the sun.

It is very rare for basal cell cancer to spread to nearby lymph nodes or to distant parts of the body. But if basal cell cancer is left untreated, it can grow into nearby areas and invade the bone or other tissues beneath the skin; it is very destructive.

Squamous cell carcinoma

This is the second most common skin cancer.

These cancers commonly appear on sun-exposed areas of the body such as the face, ears, neck, lips, and backs of the hands. They can also develop in scars or chronic skin sores elsewhere.

Squamous cell carcinomas, unlike Basal Cell Carcinoma, can spread to other parts of the body leading to death.
