In spite of it's lack of unattractive
features and typical skin cancer signs, and a lack
of clear margins, morpheaform basal cell carcinoma
can be very aggressive and difficult to treat due
it's lack of clear margins. Mohs surgery is a preferred
treatment method followed by a topical adjuvant
The tumor appears as a white or yellow,
waxy, sclerotic plaque that rarely ulcerates, and
sometimes concaves (depression). The morpheaform
will often go untreated and unrecognized as a potential
danger by the patient and is a subtype of BCC that
is the most difficult subtype to diagnose. These
are also co-labled as sclerosing, and infiltrative.
Offsite medical image search engine features morpheaform
and sclerosing basal cell carcinoma pictures. Warning,
some of the pictures are quite graphic.
