50 yr old lady with incidental finding on the right face. Clinically this lesion had a raised edge that was shiny. Look closely at the centre of the picture and you will see the arboising /serpentine blood vessels that are typical of a BCC
63 yr old male with new lesion on right side of nose for three weeks. The ulceration is really all you see here however the blood vessels on the surrounding skin are typical of long standing significant sun damage. This lesion is likely to be a BCC and is best removed.
40 yr old male with fine scaly rough skin on the nose. The area at 5 o'clock shows where some cryotherapy has been performed in the past. The surrounding skin has developed the same type of changes that occurred previously and what you see is the first signs of sun damaged skin that eventually could become a skin cancer. This can be treated with either more cryotherapy or aldara cream
This elderly lady has a raised lesion on the right side of her nose. This has the typical appearance of a BCC and I would treat this by removal and grafting new skin in its place
Anyone who is enthused by looking at skin lesions is welcome on this blog. My aim is that we all learn from each other.
