Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) is deemed as one of the most frequent types of skin cancer. Typically, it is regarded as localized in nature and there is a tendency to view the condition as non-malignant because the tumor rarely metastasizes (Habif, 2016). However, what if the condition became aggressive? If left untreated, BCC has the capability to spread through direct extension, destroying normal tissue and large portions of the body; even penetrating the subcutaneous tissue to bone and/or the brain.
This case presentation will explore the aggressive nature of BCC and depiction of its metastatic nature if left neglected.
