Should I talk to my doctor about my stage 2 basal cell carcinoma symptoms?

If you notice symptoms that may be caused by stage 2 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 2, basal cell carcinomas may just be small white or red bumps, or they can be flat brown patches. Usually, growths in stage 2 are starting to get bigger - they can often be greater than 2 centimeters in diameter. They're also starting to spread deeper into the skin, even though you can't see it. Because stage 2 basal cell carcinomas have already begun to spread, it's a good idea to see a doctor as soon as you notice symptoms so that you can diagnose and treat the cancer as early as possible.
