Basal and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (BCC / SCC)

Squamous cell skin cancers are usually pink lumps. They may have hard or scaly skin on the surface. They can bleed easily and ulcerate. They are most often found on the face, neck, lips, ears, hands, shoulders, arms and legs.

BCCs and SCCs are the commonest skin cancers and have an excellent prognosis. They are almost always cured by complete surgical excision. Under local anaesthetic in his out-patient clinic over the past six years, Meirion has now excised 256 BCCs and 74 SCCs. The results have been carefully audited. Most occur in the head and neck, usually on the face. To the best of his knowledge, none of these tumours have recurred.
