Brief Answer:
Go for removal of further skin around margin of existing cancer

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HeallthcareMagic
It is not very serious but it means that the margin of the tissue removed has basal cell carcinoma.
You need to consult a doctor and go for another surgery where some more skin around the margin of previous cancer is excised so as to completely eliminate the chance of recurrence.
Regards
