Get it removed: Only sure way to differentiate if it is locally invasive basal cell carcinoma with no potential to metastasize versus lethal squamous cell carcinoma is by excision biopsy . Pathologist will easily distinguish one from the other , as clinical examination is not that accurate . Speak to your surgeon.
