How do I manage my stage 2 basal cell carcinoma on a daily basis?

If you've been diagnosed with stage 2 basal cell carcinoma, it's important to talk to your doctor about treatment and get treated as soon as possible. After treatment, you should follow up regularly with your doctor to make sure the cancer hasn't come back or spread. It's also important to continue doing frequent self-checks of your skin, especially near the area where the first basal cell carcinoma was removed. Stage 2 basal cell carcinoma often comes back even after treatment, so keep a keen eye out for any new growths. Continue protecting your skin from the sun by using sunscreen and wearing protective clothing.
