Were you looking for information about Basal Cell Carcinoma? Basel cell is a common variation and misspelling of basal cell carcinoma.
 
Basal cell carcinoma is one of the most common types of skin cancer. It tends to grow slowly and can be found on the head, face, neck, hands, and arms. The cancer is often removed completely during biopsy, and no further treatment is required. In most cases, the disease is curable, but people who have had basal cell carcinoma have a higher-than-average risk of developing this or another form of skin cancer again.
