The best treatment for basal cell carcinoma is Mohs micrographically controlled surgery. It offers the least cosmetic damages and the best cure rates (99%).

Radiation is better as it has been proved to be almost as effective as surgery. Cryotherapy can be used as well, but it's not shown yet to be as effective.
