Abstract

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a common nonmelanoma skin cancer with increasing incidence in the United States and worldwide. It is strongly linked to UV radiation exposure and typically is slow growing. Malignancy in BCCs is due to local growth and invasion rather than metastasis, and the prognosis is generally favorable. We report the case of a 60-year-old man with a large, locally destructive giant BCC on the right side of the upper back that was successfully treated via complete surgical excision (SE) and did not recur in the subsequent 36 months. We review the indications, evidence, advantages, and disadvantages associated with multiple surgical and nonsurgical treatment modalities available for the management of giant BCCs.
