RECURRENT BASAL CELL CARCINOMA

By Gary M. White, MD

Recurrent Basal Cell Carcinoma This is an exceptional case. The entire periphery is positive for superficial BCC.


A recurrent BCC is any BCC that recurs after treatment.

Clinical

A red or red, scaly area in or adjacent to the scar is typical. Papules, tumors or deep-seated growths are other presentations.

Treatment

Mohs surgery is the preferred treatment for recurrent BCC especially on the face. Standard excision with wider margins may be considered for smaller lesions on the trunk.
