Basal Cell Carcinoma of the Skin: Personal Experience in Albania

Panajot Papa


Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most frequent epithelial tumor of the skin, characterized by a local infiltrative growth in contrast to a very rarely metastatization. In rare cases this neoplastic process behaves aggressively with deep invasion and high recurrence risk after surgery. The pathogenesis and the factors that determine the extensive growth are not completely understood. The American Joint Commettee on Cancer published on 1988 the morphologic characteristics necessary to define a BCC. In this paper the Authors give an accurate review of scientific literature on skin Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) and report their experience on this neoplastic form in Albania.

Keywords: Giant Basal cell carcinoma, Skin tumor.
