Most of the time, BCC can at times resemble non-cancerous conditions such as eczema or psoriases, therefore, requiring a well-trained specialist to correctly diagnose it. Below are some of the warning signs and symptoms that require the immediate attention of a physician if observed on a personâ€™s skin. Signs to watch out for include an open sore that may bleed or ooze water-like liquid, or remain open for a few weeks to even a month, heals, and then starts bleeding again (Levy & Hanke, 2014).
Another symptom is a reddish patch or irritated area that may mainly occur on the face, legs, arms, shoulders, and chest. At times, the patch may itch but in most cases, it persists with no discomfort (Stockfleth, Rosen, & Schumaak, 2010). Another sign is the appearance of a shiny bump or nodule that is often red, white, or pink. Moreover, BCC may be observed to appear in form of scars that are colored, making the skin around that area to be glossy and firm.
