Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is an exceedingly common cutaneous malignancy. Its frequency is rising worldwide by up to 10% a year. Even though mortality is very low as BCC hardly ever undergoes metastasis, this malignancy is highly devastating, has high morbidity rate, and is troublesome for healthcare services worldwide. Furthermore, people who have this condition are at high risk of developing further BCC and other malignancies such as squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. This review aims to present a comprehensive overview of this pivotal condition, concentrating on recent advances in our understanding of its epidemiology, risk factors, molecular genetics, diagnosis, and treatment in Southeast Asia.
