Should I talk to my doctor about my stage 0 basal cell carcinoma symptoms?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

If you notice symptoms that may be caused by stage 0 basal cell carcinoma, you should talk to your doctor. Symptoms may include a sore on your face or neck that bleeds easily or scabs and oozes. In stage 0, basal cell carcinomas may just be small white or red bumps, or they can be flat brown patches. Since stage 0 basal cell carcinomas haven't penetrated deep into the skin yet, it's a good idea to see a doctor as soon as you notice symptoms so that you can diagnose and treat the cancer early.
