Basal Cell Carcinoma
Basal Cell Carcinoma mostly occurs on the head, face, hands, and necks. BCC sometimes resembles a noncancerous skin condition like eczema or psoriasis.
Other characteristic features include:
- Pearly appearance
- Waxy papules with central depression
- Erosion or ulceration
- Black-blue or brown areas
- Crusted areas
- Rolled (raised) border
- Slow growing: 0.5 cm in 1-2 years
These signs are something that should never be ignored. On the first sign of these troubles, you should get in contact with us. At Astoria Skincare, our only goal is to get rid of cancer without causing any noticeable scar. To choose the right treatment, we will first consider the place and size of the cancer.

Depending on the diagnosis, we offer the following types of treatment:
