What If Basal Cell Carcinoma Is Untreated?

Q:
What if basal cell carcinoma is untreated?

A:
Basal cell carcinoma is a type of skin cancer. It tends to be safe that as long as there are proper and timely treatments, the disease will not be fatal.

However, if the condition is untreated, there may be bad results.

Some aggressive forms of basal cell carcinoma may invade surrounding tissues, such as muscles, bones and nervous systems. In rare cases, cancerous cells may even destroy other parts of the body.

Therefore, once you find some symptoms, go to see a doctor as soon as possible.
