Does the following report suggest basal cell carcinoma?
Doesn't look like basal cell carcinoma
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic,
I have reviewed the attached photograph though it is not very clear.
It doesn't look like basal cell carcinoma.
What is the duration and site of this lesion ?
How did it start ?
Is it associated with pain, burning or other symptoms ?
Is just a single lesion present or are they multiple ?
Kindly revert back with the answers so that I can guide you further.
Seems to be atrophic scar with hypertrophic margin
I have reviewed the newly attached photographs and still feel that it doesn't look like basal cell carcinoma.
It is looking like an atrophic scar possibly to some unnoticed folliculitis or injury associated with a hypertrophic scar around the margin.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to use a silicon based gel on the scar twice daily for 4-6 weeks and if it doesn't show much improvement consult a doctor and get it examined clinically.
Kelocote gel or Contratubex gel or Scarend silicon gel
You can use Kelocote gel or contratubex gel or Scarend silicon gel.
I think these should be available as prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.
