Abstract

As the most common human cancer worldwide and continuing to increase in incidence, basal cell carcinoma is associated with significant morbidity and cost. Continued advances in research have refined both our insight and approach to this seemingly ubiquitous disease. This 2-part continuing medical education article will provide a comprehensive and contemporary review of basal cell carcinoma. Part I of this series will describe our current understanding of this disease in regards to epidemiology, cost, clinical and histopathologic presentations, carcinogenesis, natural history, and disease associations.
