      Am tennis player with many friends and we just about keep the dermatologists in their big expensive boats and resort condos. Surgical removal is a simple procedure when basel cell is caught early. If this is in the facial, neck area where scarring may be a concern locate a certified MOHs surgeon in your area. They are particularly trained to keep the excision as limited as possible and many are adept at cosmetic results...and stay out of the sun...do as I say, not as I do!

      Hi. I have a basal cell cancer also. I am worried too. I havn't had surgery yet. Mine is prettu large so they tried to shrink it using a cream first. I got a second opinion because I didn't like the slowness of treating it, and the oncologist said I should see a plastic surgeon and is setting up the appointment for me. I am scared though, it's on my chest area. I wish you the best, if you would like to support each other, we can follow each other.

      Try Curaderm, it worked for me.
      Also take Stabilized Oxygen (as the directions say)
      Both of these things have been amazing for me.
