What is Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC)?

Basal Cell Carcinoma or BCC (commonly known as Rodent Ulcer) is a malignant tumour of keratinocytes skin cells located in the stratum germinativum layer of the hair follicles. Therefore it appears only on Hairy areas but never on Palms or soles of feet. BCC is more common in North Europeans, fair skin people or people who take Immuno-suppressants or chemotherapy treatment.

BCC is the most common skin cancer in the world. Although there is no official number but skin professionals treat around 0.5 Million per year just in the UK. Thankfully BCC is harmless as it never spread to organs therefore it is not a life threatening condition.

The NHS usually offers a rapid diagnosis of skin cancer but the waiting time to get it removed can be extremely long taking several months. UK Skin offers a private skin cancer treatment service for patients who would like to explore a faster option than the NHS. There is no need for a referral from your GP or hospital.

The procedure will be done under local anaesthetic and would last approximately 30 minutes. The skin needs to be incised and the cancer cut out with some margins. The wound will be closed with sutures and a dressing will be applied on. It will leave a linear scar that usually fades away over the years. The removed lesion will be sent to Histology to be analysed under microscope. Patient will be reviewed to discuss the result. Communication between our Clinic and the NHS is upheld rigorously and we will keep your GP informed of the outcome.

The staff is great, they replied to all my questions very quickly and even after the procedure, when I was worried about the swelling, they quickly contacted the surgeon and reassured me that everything was alright. The surgeon also was very professional and friendly and explained everything in detail. The procedure was painless and only took a few minutes. I would definitely recommend UKSkin.

I required 2 moles to be removed from sensitive areas on my chin and upper lip.Right from 1st contact the UK SKIN Clinic (Kings Heath, Birmingham) was nothing but professional. From the quote via email to the actual procedure I was impressed with the service.Whilst not cheap, you’re paying for a 1st class private treatment in which you receive very good care and I once I’d received the quote I then had no further unexpected costs.I’d completed my own research on the surgeon that would perform the procedure (Dr Ouali) and was more than happy with his credentials so paid the required amount and booked my appointment.The appointment at the clinic was everything you’d expect a private practice to be, spotlessly clean, well maintained and the staff very friendly and thorough.The procedure was quick and painless and the results post healing are skin that has no visible scarring.I have had friends comment on how impressed they are with the results and have recommended UK SKIN clinic to them.

I underwent a vaser liposuction procedure to under my chin and neck. Although I did not have much of double chin, I was aware of the signs of aging with beginning of 'turkey neck' and jowls. I am over the moon with the results. It's only been a few weeks and my jaw line and neck are much more sculpted... The operation was not painful and much quicker than I expected. The whole experience was fantastic from pre to post op.

I had made a long trip down from Nottingham so I was happily surprised to find out I could have my treatment done on the same day as my consult. The surgeon made me feel really calm about the whole thing and I must say the facilities were excellent, it felt like I was in a hospital 👌

The only place in Birmingham that would actually bother seeing me and offering treatment. I thought I had something rare, but realised it’s really common across people. The removal was very quick and painless and team has been following up to see how I’m doing over last few days (and I’m not even paying them for aftercare, it’s all free). It’s been a good experience and good aftercare overall and that’s why I’m giving five stars.

The surgeons here are great! He was always very patient in communicating with me, and I recovered very well after the operation! The staff is very responsible for the skin management program here, they will not let me do the project that is not suitable for me, great experience!

Staff were welcoming, the clinic was extremely relaxing and clean. Able to have consultation and treatment on the same day. I had three facial moles removed. Completely painless following slight sting from the injection to numb the areas. I wish I had them removed years ago!!

After many years of thinking about having 2 moles removed from my face I decided to make enquiries. As it was covid 19 a lot of places wanted pictures. This was the only clinic that asked me further questions about my moles before giving me a price. That made the decision to go with them. The appointment was easy and sufficient, quick procedures and aftercare was given. I have contacted them a few times after the removal to ask questions and they are always on hand. Definately recommend. Thank you.

after my procedure I was given free aftercare and allowed to follow up with the team as much as I’d like, it definitely put me ease and I could ask as many questions as I wanted and even got a call with surgeon who did my procedure which was a nice surprise

The biggest complement I can give UKSKIN is the fact that I wasn’t rushed at all throughout this process. Getting my eyelid surgery done was a big big thing for me, and I’d been saving for a while, but they were the only people I spoke to who were genuinely nice and caring throughout the process. This makes a big difference when you have lots of questions and can be hesitant at first. Surgeon was really nice and caring too.

The only place I’d recommend going to have eyelid surgery done in Birmingham, I’ve had consultations elsewhere but never gone ahead until recently because I couldn’t have the procedure done locally. At UKSKIN you can actually get the procedure done in the same place you have the consultation, we need more transparency like this, refreshing!!

I was born with an ear abnormality where one of my ears was detached from my face, this was my main concern. Whilst in the consultation I was advised that my other ear was 1cm bigger than the other and this could also be corrected to look more symmetrical to the other. Im so pleased with the service and my result

I was taken aback that they’d treat me at such short notice in all fairness, and I actually managed to get the procedure done in Bham as opposed to being shipped out to to another city!Fairly priced, meticulous surgeon and great patient team, five stars all the way.

The service I received from the moment I stepped in the door was fantastic. I was welcomed warmly straight away by the reception staff who were all very friendly. Dr Ouali talked me through the process and he and Val really went above and beyond at putting me at ease, especially when sharing that I was exceptionally nervous. They chatted with me throughout the procedure, always checking I was okay, and I honestly cannot speak highly enough of them. I nicknamed them the dream team because that is what they are, I will be recommending them to everyone. Thank you so much for such a wonderful service!

Highly recommend, from enquiry to procedure everything was seemless. The cost was very reasonable, The clinic is lovely, clean and modern. Reception were very welcoming. The Dr who did my procedure along with the nurse put my mind at ease, and he made a fantastic job, the scar is barely noticeable a month on. All in all a really positive experience. Thank you

Absolutely amazing clinic! The staff are so welcoming and make you feel completely at ease. The clinic is so presentable and clean and the staff are clearly extremely knowledgeable in what they do. The service from consultation to treatment was exceptional. I never usually leave reviews but 5 stars and recognition is well deserved! I will no doubt be returning for future treatments and won’t go anywhere else now. Thank you so much!
