Can basaloid squamous cell carcinoma be prevented?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

Unfortunately, there's not much you can do to prevent basaloid squamous cell carcinoma, but there are several steps you can take to reduce your risk for the disease. Because smoking and drinking alcohol are significant risk factors, avoiding those behaviors may help reduce the risk. Also, you may be able to slow the progress of basaloid squamous cell carcinoma if you catch it early. Because of this, it's important to see a doctor right away if you notice any unusual symptoms that may be caused by basaloid squamous cell carcinoma.
