What is stage 0 basal cell carcinoma?

Stage 0 basal cell carcinoma is the first stage of development of the most common type of skin cancer. Stage 0 basal cell carcinoma is usually caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun, so it often develops on areas of skin that are exposed to the sun. The tumors caused by stage 0 basal cell carcinoma are usually small, slow-growing red bumps that often form on the skin of the head and neck of older people. Fortunately, stage 0 basal cell carcinoma is easy to treat since it's still early in the cancer's development.
