Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) Treatment

Millions of people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year in the U.S. and the majority of these cases are basal cell carcinoma (BCC). It is estimated that over 3.5 million Americans each year are diagnosed with this form of skin cancer. While it is very prevalent, this is also the most treatable form of skin cancer. At MJR Dermatology, we offer effective basal cell carcinoma (BCC) treatment at our medical center in Lawrenceville, GA.

Dr. Matthew Reschly has over 25 years of experience as a skin cancer specialist and dermatologist. His focus has been on providing essential skin treatments for his patients in the greater Atlanta area, especially those with any type of skin cancer. His expertise, compassion and surgical skills have helped countless skin cancer patients overcome their disease and live long, healthy lives.

Symptoms of BCC

Basal cell carcinoma is a slow-growing type of non-melanoma skin cancer that most commonly affects elderly people. An estimated 90% of BCC lesions are caused by UV ray exposure over many years, usually appearing on the face or other sun-exposed skin areas. These skin growths can develop over decades, slowly evolving from mutated cells in cancer. The symptoms of BCC lesions include:

  • Red patches of skin that do not go away
  • Shiny bumps
  • Growths with rolled or elevated edges
  • Indentation in the middle of an elevated bump
  • Open sores that bleed or crust over
  • Scar-like skin growths

BCCs grow slowly, but they can cause extensive skin, tissue and bone damage if left untreated. If you have a skin growth that lasts for more than 2-3 weeks, you should always have it examined by a skin cancer specialist such as Dr. Reschly. BCCs rarely spread to other areas of the body but they can still be a serious health hazard.

Removal of basal cell carcinoma can be performed by Dr. Reschly at our facility in Lawrenceville, GA. He specializes in skin cancer treatment and surgery, with advanced procedures available at our medical center. If you have symptoms of BCC, come see us right away – call our clinic to book your appointment with Dr. Reschly.
