A dermoscopically well featured Basal cell cancer

Image

I am not going to shrink from repeating myself! Reality is repetitive, no two skin lesions are identical, seeing lots of examples trains the mind in pattern recognition.

Here’s another BCC showing the four classic features of pink background, arborising vessels, irregular pigmented structures and micro ulcers. The latter are the little yellow/orange shapes, in from the edge at about 12, 1, and 10 o’clock. Nice blue/grey ovoid nests at the lower end, some maple leaf/spoke wheel brown and grey structures to the upper right. Arguably. I generally prefer to talk about irregular pigmented structures.
