In brief: Usually surgery
The most common way to treat basal cell cancer is with local surgical removal.
Sometimes a special technique called mohs surgery will be recommended. When treated early the cure rates are excellent. See a dermatologist of facial plastic surgeon for treatment advice.

In brief: If treated not bad
Basal cell cancers are locally invasive cancers, compared to melanomas and squamous cell caners which are lethal.
Simple removal by various surgical techniques ( rarely by superficial radiation ) will cure.
