What are the symptoms of stage 3 basal cell carcinoma?

The main symptoms of stage 3 basal cell carcinoma are skin growths that develop on areas of sun-exposed skin, like the head and neck. In many stage 3 basal cell carcinomas, the tumors are found on the face, particularly near the eyes, ears, and jaw. Often, stage 3 basal cell carcinomas start out slowly as little red or white shiny bumps that gradually grow wider and deeper. The tumors generally grow very slowly, so they're sometimes not easily noticeable. Sometimes, stage 3 basal cell carcinomas will alternate between scabbing and bleeding, which makes people think they're just a sore. Other times, the growths will form flat scaly patches that may be brown or red. Stage 3 basal cell carcinomas may also have visible blood vessels around the growths, especially when they're on the face.
