Is stage 2 basal cell carcinoma serious?

Although stage 2 basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer, fortunately it's only mildly serious. When it's caught during stage 2, basal cell carcinoma is usually still quite treatable. It doesn't spread to other parts of the body easily, and it grows relatively slowly so nearby tissue isn't rapidly infected. However, in stage 2, the basal cell carcinoma has started to spread deeper into the skin and may start to attack the skin's nerves. Because of this, it's important to see a doctor if you notice symptoms of stage 2 basal cell carcinoma.
