How do I manage my stage 4 basal cell carcinoma on a daily basis?

If yo''ve been diagnosed with stage 4 basal cell carcinoma, it's important to talk to your doctor about treatment and get treated as soon as possible. After treatment, you should follow up regularly with your doctor to make sure the cancer hasn't come back or spread. It's also important to continue doing frequent self-checks of your skin, especially near the area where the first basal cell carcinoma was removed. Stage 4 basal cell carcinoma has a high chance of coming back even after treatment, so keep a keen eye out for any new growths. Continue protecting your skin from the sun by using sunscreen and wearing protective clothing. Also, the diagnosis and treatment of stage 4 basal cell carcinoma may be emotionally and mentally stressful. Take advantage of things like support groups, yoga, and meditation that may help you cope with the emotional challenges of the disease.
