A 54-year-old woman with a family history of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and a personal history of multiple BCCs that had been removed since she was the age of 21 presented for follow-up of a recently diagnosed nodular BCC of the cheek. Physical examination of the area revealed healed biopsy site changes. However, the patient insisted upon rebiopsy to exclude basal cell recurrence.
