A common skin cancer: Basal cell carcinoma is the most common skin cancer type. It is frequently slow growing. They rarely metastasize. Typically, they occur in areas of the skin that are exposed to sunlight. The cure rates are very high. Treatment is with either surgery or radiation therapy, although other techniques may also be employed. http://www.skincancer.org/skin-cancer-information/basal-cell-carcinoma.
