Dr. Konika Chaudhary | Dr. Suresh V. Phatak


Abstract: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a slow growing, locally aggressive tumor that arises from the basal layer of the epidermis. It is the most common cancer in the fair-skinned population. Risk of developing BCC is 30 % and the incidence is continuously increasing worldwide. Basal cell carcinoma is hardly fatal but causes deformation of face. Out of all radiological modality, ultrasonography is used to diagnose of basal cell carcinoma and gives comprehensive study about the anatomical extension of the lesion, exact location, vascularity, and deeper involvement. This detailed knowledge helps in treatment and the cosmetic results of patients. Here we are reporting a case of Basal cell carcinoma and ultrasonography, doppler and sono-elastography features are discussed
