Basal cell skin cancers

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Dr. John Clay is seeing patients with basal cell skin cancer at Primary Health Group - Appomatox.

It is commonly seen on the face and ears.  They often are pink, have rolled edges, a pearly appearance, and tiny blood vessels coursing over them. They often bleed easily.

A skin biopsy is necessary to confirm the diagnosis. 

See your doctor if you have a recently noticed unusual appearing mole or skin lesion present for more than several weeks.
