Is the nose the most common place to get skin cancer?

How is it treated?


Answer by  doctormom51 (18)

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer and the nose is a likely site of occurrence. Certain factors increase the risk of skin cancer- exposure to sun, UV exposure ( tanning beds) and age. Prevention is the best treatment but once diagnosed- it is treated with radiation therapy, cryosurgery and creams.

The nose is a common location for skin cancer caused by exposure to the sun. It is a common site because of the way the nose projects from the face, thus exposing it more than other areas of the face. Treatment is determined by the type, nature and location of the cancer.
