The majority of skin cancer cases are basal cell carcinoma (BCC) – an estimated eight out of ten skin cancers are classified as BCC. This type of skin cancer affects the lower layer of the epidermis or basal cell layer. This type of skin cancer is slow-growing, but it can be deadly if left untreated. Our dermatology team at LM Medical NYC offers basal cell carcinoma treatment at our state-of-the-art facility in Manhattan.

Causes and Symptoms of BCC

Anyone can get basal cell carcinoma, or BCC, but there are risk factors that can contribute to the formation of BCC lesions. Like most skin cancers, the most common cause of skin cancer is excessive exposure to UV rays. Other risk factors include light-colored skin, age, genetics and lifestyle choices (smoking). Some of the symptoms of basal cell carcinoma include:

  • Open sores that do not heal
  • A shiny bump, similar to a mole
  • Shiny-flat skin growth, similar to a scar
  • Reddish patch of skin that itches or is painful
  • Pink skin growth with a crusty indentation

Any skin growth that is unusual should be examined by a dermatologist. Some can be pre-cancerous growths or actual skin cancer that may require removal or treatment.

The good news is that BCC treatment is very effective when detection of lesions or growths occur early. Most BCCs are small growths that can be removed, eliminating the risk of the cancer spreading. Skin expert Dr. Morgan Rabach at LM Medical NYC is a board certified dermatologist who can diagnose and treat basal cell carcinoma, and treatment can be performed at our medical clinic in Greenwich Village.

If you need a preventive skin check or have a suspicious skin growth you think may be BCC, contact our office to book an appointment. We offer advanced options in basal cell carcinoma treatment to prevent the spread of this deadly disease.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
