Can children get stage 3 basal cell carcinoma?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

In general, older people are affected by basal cell carcinoma much more often than those who are younger - in fact, about 80% of cases of the disease affect people over age 50. It may be possible for younger adults to develop stage 3 basal cell carcinoma, but it usually doesn't affect children.
