Carcinoma is a malignant neoplasm of epithelial origin. It is a tumor that arises in the tissues that line the body`s organs like the nose, the colon, the penis, breasts, prostrate, urinary bladder, and the ureter. About 80% of all cancer cases are carcinomas.
Basal cell carcinoma
This flesh-colored, wart-like, pearly, smooth, non-scaly papule (bump) is a typical basal cell carcinoma. In this case, it is on a common, sun-exposed area of the face -- the forehead.
This basal cell carcinoma is 5 to 6 centimeters across, red, has well-defined (demarcated) borders and sprinkled brown pigment along the margins. This cancer is located on the person's back.
