It does not look that bad. The biopsy result is basal cell carcinoma? You need not worry too much. The prognosis of basal cell carcinoma is very good. This tumor rarely metastasizes to other parts of the body. Mohs surgery is frequently used to remove the tumor with good results.

So sorry to hear that. Different types of surgery can be used to treat basal cell cancers. Curettage and electrodesiccation is a common treatment for small basal cell carcinomas. It might need to be repeated to help make sure all of the cancer has been removed. You need to consult a dermatologist about specific procedures for you.
