Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common skin cancer of humans. The incidence of BCC is closely correlated with sun exposure, as well as older age. Because of this, BCCs are frequently found on sun-exposed areas of fair-skinned, older individuals. The axilla is one of the sun-protected sites where BCC rarely develops. We herein report three unusual cases of primary BCC which arose from the axilla.
