Basal Cell Carcinoma in Orlando, FL

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a variety of skin cancer that generally manifests as a dark or flesh-colored bump or growth on the epidermis (the surface layer of skin). The lump can appear smooth, cloudy, white, pink, brown, or black. Basal cell carcinomas show up if DNA changes occur in the skin cells because of chronic exposure to UV radiation, whether from the sun or indoor tanning machines. Typical areas where basal cell carcinomas can form include the neck, face, scalp, nose, torso, legs, and arms. At Pure Skin Dermatology & Aesthetics, our team diagnoses and treats BCC and other skin cancers utilizing advanced techniques and tools. If you've noticed a growth that you're worried about, or if you're due for your next skin cancer screening, reach out to our Orlando, FL practice to set up your appointment.

Regardless of whether or not this is your first experience with basal cell carcinoma, the experienced team at Pure Skin Dermatology & Aesthetics is here to assist you. Our Orlando, FL practice offers a variety of treatment options for BCC. Your recommended treatment will depend on a number of factors, including your overall health and the depth and progression of the skin cancer. Typical treatment options for basal cell carcinoma at our office include topical chemotherapy, electrodessication and curettage, and excision.

Basal cell carcinoma will often manifest on the parts of your skin that get the most sun exposure, showing up as a persistent bump or non-healing wound or ulcer on your skin that won't clear up or heal. If left untreated, it can grow, turning into multiplying lesions or lumps. If you notice anything of the following signs on your skin, you should schedule a skin examination at Pure Skin Dermatology & Aesthetics as soon as possible:

  • A sore that bleeds, oozes, or crusts over without healing
  • A shiny bump that can range in color
  • A scar-like lesion that may appear white or pale yellow in color
  • An unexplained red patch

I started seeing Dr. Grayman in March for my hair and alopecia. In the last several months my skin has cleared and my hair is filling in. I'm very happy with the care I've received and her staff is great never once have I felt rushed. She is a direct communicator which I love. I specially sought out an African America dermatologist and she is more than worth the wait. I have had to wait in office once or twice but I wait anytime I go to the Dr. It happens. Patience and kindness goes a long way.
