Not usually: Basal cell is usually a painless pearly appearing nodule in sun exposed areas of skin. It can get very big and produce an ulcer in the center. The sooner it is diagnosed and removed the better.

Yes it can: Usually slow growth, painless, may fell rough or like a bump. Pearly pink surface. With growth can ulcerate & bleed & itch. See derm please.

A 43-year-old male asked:

Which cancers are associated with "pruritus scroti"?

None of them: If you've got a man itch that doesn't respond to good hygiene and topical tolnaftate or another antifugnal, get seen by your physician. If you have cancer-phobia, learn about the cancer family of diseases and how effective surveillance is in catching them early when they're curable. Stop troubling yourself like this -- life's difficult enough already.
