BCC happens in the deepest level in the epidermis, the stratum basal. It is the least fatal skin cancer because it is easier to cure than other types. It can be a pink, brown or black dome-shaped bump on the surface of your skin. It may appear as a small pearly, flesh-colored mole or pimple that doesn't go away at first. If you have this, your doctor might take a sample or biopsy of the growth and test it for cancer cells. Possible ways to treat this cancer include; cutting out the tumor, freezing the tumor, scarping away the tumor and using electricity to kill the cancer cells, radiation therapy, and cream and pills. To avoid getting this skin cancer, use sunscreen, avoid too much sun, and dress appropriately for the weather.
