How common is stage 2 basal cell carcinoma?

It's difficult to determine the exact number of cases of stage 2 basal cell carcinoma because the disease may not be diagnosed until later, or it might be diagnosed and treated before it's progressed to stage 2. Also, basal cell carcinoma often isn't assigned a stage unless the tumors are large or have spread significantly. In general, basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of cancer. In the United States, over 2.6 million people will be diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma each year.
