Basal cell carcinoma is usually a superficial spread and very rare metastasis. Cicatricial (morpheaform), infiltrative and basosquamous types of BCC are aggressive, whereas nodular, pigmented and superficial types are not aggressive.

In the above photograph, a mass lesion of approximately 8 mm in diameter at the entrance of the external auditory canal was seen in the examination of a patient with occasional ear obstruction. As seen above, excisional byopsy was performed and histopathological result was reported as basal cell carcinoma. No recurrent tumor mass was detected in the 1-year follow-up.
