Treatment: Basal cell carcinoma is a very common type of skin cancer. Once you have been diagnosed, the lesion is typically removed. This is commonly done by dermatologists and plastic surgeons. In some cases, medical treatments can be used if surgery is not a good option. These lesions rarely spread, but can be locally aggressive. Prognosis for these lesions is generally pretty good.

Type of skin cancer: A basal cell carcinoma is a common type of skin cancer. Usually, it is found on the head or neck region and tends to be associated with a history of sun exposure. This type of cancer rarely spreads, but it can be locally aggressive. Primary treatment is surgical excision, although some medical treatments do exist. This is commonly treated by dermatologist, surgeons, and plastic surgeons.

It's debatable: Although it can generate fine results, there are still some issues that create concerns with this technique. The injected fat may cause some scarring and calcifications that may look like or may obscure a cancer during screening. There are also concerns about the effects of injected stem cells on the development of breast cancer. The asps and asaps currently do not recommend this for augmentation.
