It is Just a Humongous Mole
AbstractBasal cell carcinoma despite a rare entity is oftentimes overlooked following its vague presentation. This is to a greater extent when it mimics a more congenial lesion such as a skin mole. Herein, we would like to report on incidental finding of basal cell carcinoma of nasal dorsum in an elderly gentleman who reckon the lesion to be a skin mole. Excision biopsy with bilobed flap was carried our successfully with no evidence of recurrence till date.
