Although radiotherapy is generally used in older cacrinoma who are not candidates for surgery, it is also used in cases where surgical excision will be disfiguring or difficult to reconstruct especially on the tip of the nose, and the nostril rims. The radiotherapy is considered a prepossessing factor for tumor formation. Trichoblastic carcinoma may be a more accurate term due to its predominant follicular differentiation and possible follicular origin.

No consensus – wide local excision, mastectomy, radiation therapy Patients should be followed up for primary site recurrence and axillary metastasis as there is greater incidence than with BCC at other anatomical sites Dermatol Surg ; Recurrence rates of treated basal cell carcinomas.
