Is there a cure for stage 3 basal cell carcinoma?

There's no guaranteed cure for stage 3 basal cell carcinoma, but treatments for the condition are usually effective. Depending on the location of the tumor, treatment may include electrodesiccation and curettage or surgery (including Mohs surgery) to remove the tumor. These treatments are usually pretty successful at removing the cancerous growth, but it's important to remember that basal cell carcinoma can re-develop. Because of this, it's important to get frequent skin screenings after treatment for stage 3 basal cell carcinoma.
