*Criteria for Low Risk BCC

Inclusions

If the lesion is:

  • located below the clavicle (that is, not on the head or neck)
  • less than 1 cm in diameter with clearly defined margins
  • not a recurrent BCC following incomplete excision
  • not a persistent BCC that has been incompletely excised according to histology
  • not morphoeic, infiltrative or basosquamous in appearance
  • not located:
    • over important underlying anatomical structures (for example, major vessels or nerves)
    • in an area where primary surgical closure may be difficult (for example, digits or front of shin)
    • in an area where difficult excision may lead to a poor cosmetic result
    • at another highly visible anatomical site (for example, anterior chest or shoulders) where a good cosmetic result is important to the patient.

If the BCC does not meet the above criteria, or there is any diagnostic doubt, following discussion with the patient they should be referred to a member of the LSMDT.

Exclusions

If the patient is:

  • aged 24 years or younger (that is, a child or young adult)
  • immunosuppressed or has Gorlin’s syndrome
