Sebaceous carcinoma

Sebaceous carcinoma presents as a firm, usually yellowish, somewhat translucent nodule, most commonly on the face.

Histologically, there is a malignant tumor with sebaceous differentiation, although some contain additional features of basal cell carcinoma.

Metastases can occur.

Treatment:

  • Surgical excision is the treatment of choice.
  • Regular follow-up with regional lymph node assessment is recommended for at least 5 years.
