My father had two malignant basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) removed at different times—one from the helix of his ear, and one from his nose—that both required skin grafts (from the inner thigh) to repair. He subsequently survived and lived until 94 years of age. I'd be optimistic that your husband has the same success.

More than 4 million cases of basal cell carcinoma are diagnosed in the US every year. BCCs are the most frequently occurring form of all cancers. More than one out of every three new cancers is a skin cancer, and the vast majority of them are BCCs.

BCCs seldom spread (metastasize) beyond the original tumour site. Only in exceedingly rare cases can they spread to other parts of the body and become life-threatening. They shouldn’t be taken lightly though, as they can be disfiguring if not treated promptly.

NB: I'm not a medical doctor, and only post this info FYI.

Back in 2014 my husband got a biopsy for a mole on the back of his neck. The tests came back that it was Melanoma.

My advice: trust your doctor. Mr. Natachan went and got it removed and is just fine. He goes to the dermatologist twice a year, and gets regular PET scans. He's been cancer free since and is healthy.

RE: my husband has skin cancer
Sorry it has been hard for me to respond sooner.

I had a skin cancer removed from my ear as a kid. Never returned.

We see a lot of this in Australia. It is very rare for it to become dangerous. The op takes about 10 minutes.

Good luck. Dale
