Although stage 0 basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of cancer, fortunately it's not too serious. When it's caught during stage 0, basal cell carcinoma is usually treatable. It doesn't spread to other parts of the body easily, and it grows relatively slowly so nearby tissue isn't rapidly affected. However, it's still important to see a doctor if you notice symptoms of stage 0 basal cell carcinoma because it can cause problems if left untreated.
