Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer. It begins in the basal cells, which are at the bottom of the outer skin layer (epidermis). Basal cell carcinoma can often be cured. It rarely spreads to other areas of the body (metastasizes). It may come back at the same location (recur), but it can be treated again if this happens.
