Basal Cell Cancer (BCC) of The Nose

Basal Cell Carcinoma of The Nose

Definition of basal cell carcinoma of the nose

Basal cell carcinoma is a carcinoma that occurs only in the skin resulting from the basal cells of the pilosebaceous skin inserts. Basal cell carcinoma is a carcinoma that occurs only in the skin resulting from the basal cells of the pilosebaceous skin inserts. It is the most common malignancy in humans. 65% of epithelioid tumors, 20% of cancers in males and 10 - 15% of cancers in females is basal cell carcinoma. Basal cell carcinomas at 80 to 90% head - neck constitute 25% of primary nasal lesions. Nasal tip area and nasal ala are the most common sites in the nose.

Nomenclature of tumor (BCC)

Basal cell carcinoma, also known as rodent ulcer or BBC, may occur in other parts of the body, although it usually occurs on the face or neck. In basal cell carcinoma, one of the most common types of cancer, tumor cells resemble and originate from cells in the basal (most inner part of skin) skin layer.

About the skin cancers

Skin cancer with abnormal growth of skin cells occurs most commonly on the skin exposed to the sun. However, this common type of cancer may also occur in areas of the skin that are not exposed to sunlight under normal conditions. There are three main types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. You can reduce your risk of skin cancer by limiting exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

BCC is named as a "cancer" but it is not e a typical cancer!

BCC is named as a cancer, it is not a typical cancer. Spread to other organs, does not splash. That's why it doesn't cause death. It usually grows slowly. It will damage the area. Percentage, nasal wounds in the nose, pale pink round masses or brown skin lesions may occur in the form. If it is not too large, it is treated with small surgical procedures, there is no need to fear. This is a skin tumor, "Basal Hucreli Carcinoma", has the feature of spreading (local aggressive) in the region. Almost no metastasis of basal cell cancers leads to controversy in the use of the term cancer for this disease.

Risk factors for basal cell carcinoma of the nose

People with light-colored skin often tend to develop after age 40. It is most common between the ages of 40 and 60 years. It is more common in males than females.

The ones most affected by basal cell carcinoma, known as skin damage caused by ultraviolet rays in sunlight, are people with open skin over fifty years of age. The reason why it is less visible in dark skin is that there is a greater amount of melanin in the skin. Melanin is an ultraviolet-absorbing pigment and is protected because it is more in dark skin. One can also conclude: the frequency of encountering in sunny climates and outdoors is much higher. Although sun rays, especially UV-B rays are considered to be predisposing, these tumors are more common than the hands and forearms exposed to the sun in the eyelids and nasal roots. Other risk factors include genetic, immunosuppression, and previous traumatic lesions.

Types of basal cell carcinoma of the nose

They may appear papules, plaques or nodules in the skin. Classically, it is characterized by a thin, annular boundary that surrounds a slightly sedimentary area. Tumors may be yellow to brown in color. There are superficial, cicatricial, ulcus rodens, pigmented and nodular types in the clinic.

Symptoms of basal cell carcinoma

It usually occurs on the edge of the nose with a percentage and especially face.
Initially, it is a small, flat nodule, slowly growing and centering. It turns into a shallow, shallow ulcer.

Diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma

Diagnosis is made by biopsy. Early diagnosis and treatment are important because the tumor spreads slowly to damage the surrounding tissues.

Treatment of basal cell carcinoma of the nose

Surgical excision, radiotherapy and adequate cauterization treat most basal cell carcinomas. Surgical excision is a suitable treatment for histopathological diagnosis. Neoplasm relapses to the extent of surgical excision, but only one third is recurrent. If the defect resulting from surgical intervention is not suitable for primary anastomosis, a rotation flap, nasal flap may be used for reconstruction. In some cases, plastic surgery is needed depending on the size and location of the tumor.
