Were you looking for information about Basal Cell Carcinoma? Basil skin cancer treatment is a common misspelling and variation of basal cell carcinoma.
 
Basal cell carcinoma accounts for 90 percent of all skin cancers in the United States. It can occur anywhere on the body, but is typically found on the head, face, neck, hands, and arms. In most cases, basal cell cancer is treated by completely removing the growth during a biopsy. Although the disease is usually curable, people who have had basal cell carcinoma are at a higher-than-average risk of developing this or another form of skin cancer again.
