In brief: Curable

There are three "main" types of skin cancer.
Basal, Squamous and Melanoma. Basal cell carcinoma is typically 100% curable. Within BCC are multiple subtypes, most of which are easily treatable. Sun exposure has been implicated as being a precipitating factor in all types of skin cancer. If you are suspicious that you might have a basal cell carcinoma, please see your dermatologist or surgeon
