  • Skin cancers are classified by the types of epidermal cells involved: Basal cell carcinoma develops from abnormal growth of the cells in the lowest layer of the epidermis and is the most common type of skin cancer. 
  • Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma rarely spread to other parts of the body.
