Causes of Basal Cell Carcinoma

The cause of basal cell carcinoma is well-known, unlike many skin cancers. The main cause of this cancer is ultra-violet rays from the sun or tanning beds.

When ultraviolet rays from the sun or tanning beds have contact with your skin over a long period, they damage the DNA in your skin cells. The body always tries to repair this damage, but it exceeds its capability when these harmful rays repeatedly hit your skin.

Skin cancer develops when your body is unable to repair this damage, and it develops mostly after years of exposure to sunlight and UV rays. Constant exposure to sunlight increases your risks of developing skin cancer.

Adults younger than 50 years of age can develop basal cell carcinoma, most especially young women who use tanning beds indoors. This condition can be preventable if these women don’t use tanning beds.

Diagnosis of Basal Cell Carcinoma

A skin biopsy is the only way to diagnose any skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma. Our dermatologist in London can perform this procedure on you when you visit our office.

You shouldn’t be anxious or scared; it is a safe process, and we are well-trained to handle this. We are registered and licensed, and all our procedures and equipment are up to standard. When you visit us, an expert will remove a part of the growth or the entire growth and check it under a microscope or send it to a laboratory.

A biopsy report will communicate the result to you. If the result comes out positive, that you have a BCC, then we will work closely with you and look at many factors which will help us choose the best treatment method for your specific case.

ReviewsI was suffering from terrible allergies. Over the counter medications didn't help much and life was going from bad to worse. I started spending more time browsing the web for a solution. Then, a colleague recommended me the Clear skin Clinic. I went for the first consultation without much expectation. But the moment I arrived, all my worries were put to rest. I underwent the pinprick allergy testing to learn that I was allergic to dust mites. Since then, I bought cleaning products and vacuums as suggested by these people and that helped. I suffer seldom now, thanks to Clear skin Clinic.

ReviewsMy eczema had been a constant problem since I was young and I had treatment of different sorts with mixed results. It was a colleague who suggested that I go to Clear Skin Clinic and see if they could help. I was so impressed by the staff at the clinic all of whom were kind and efficient. I have started treatment now and my skin is looking so much better.
