There are no good studies, however, comparing cryosurgery with other modalities, particularly with Mohs surgery, excision, or electrodesiccation and curettage so that no conclusion can be made whether cryosurgery is as efficacious as other methods.
The tumor affects mainly photoexposed areas, most often in the head adakah seldom appears on genitalia and perigenital region. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. The basaluoma is considered a prepossessing factor for tumor formation.
History revealed that he had a nodule over his back that was diagnosed pathologically as basal cell carcinoma BCCand a wide excision was performed 6 years ago. Patients with a primary cutaneous BCC or other cutaneous carcinoma with or without the clinical, radiological, or pathological evidence of regional or adalaj metastases are divided into the following stages:.
Cryotherapywhich involves freezing the lesion to kill cancer cells, is usually used to treat precancer. Some advocate curettage alone without electrodesiccation, and with the same cure rate. Mohs in the adalqh,  in which the tumor is surgically excised and then immediately examined under a microscope.
Fair skin, trisomy of chromosome 6, immunosuppression in affected patients, invasion of perineural space and blood vessels, multiple recurrences, and prior radiation therapy are some of the other risk factors asalah for metastasis in BCC [ 1213 ]. Skin examinations by a doctor are not routinely recommendedbut they may be important for people at a high risk of skin cancer.
To diagnose basal-cell carcinomas, a skin biopsy is performed for histopathologic analyses. Despite the slow progress and numerous therapeutic methods, the basal cell carcinoma should not be underestimated.

Any tumor size, one involved lymph node measuring 3 cm or less in size or tumor extension into the maxilla, mandible, orbit, or temporal bone. The cancer can impinge on vital structures like nerves and result in loss of sensation or loss of function or rarely death.
As it remains unclear whether metastatic BCC is itself a separate subset of basal cell carcinoma, we feel that early BCC localized at any site perhaps constitutes a biological continuum that may ultimately manifest with metastasis in some individuals and should be evaluated as such. The role of the immune system suppression in the pathogenesis of skin carcinomas is also suspected since the incidence of BCC increased among immune suppressed patients and the lesions affect mainly the photo nonexposed skin of the body and the upper limbs.
They were firm in consistency and fixed to the overlying skin and deeper basaliima. Histology showed nests of basaloid cells located subepidermally, with clear connection with the basal layer of the epidermis and no infiltration of tumor cells in the reticular dermis [ Figure 7 ].
