Background: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a non-invasive skin cancer, with exposure to ultraviolet radiation and changes in the PTCH gene as its important etiologies. Other risk factors include genetic, age, sex, skin color, sun exposure levels, occupations and other carcinogens.

Results: Out of 95 patients, 78.95% was male. Age range was 50 to 70 years. Head and neck were the most common sites of infection, most of the patients were farmers and resident in hot, dry weather.
