- 1.1. The recurrence rate in 2,900 definitively treated basal cell carcinomas during a 10 year period was 3.4 percent.
- 2.2. Ninety-eight percent of recurrent lesions were controlled by roentgen or surgical therapy.
- 3.3. Following surgical excision, 60 percent of all recurrences appear within 2 years, and 76 percent within 3 years.
