Carcinoma may be a category of sorts of cancer that develop from epithelial cells. Specifically, a carcinoma may be a cancer that begins during a tissue that lines the inner or outer surfaces of the body, which arises from cells originating within the endodermal, mesodermal or ectodermal germ layer during embryogenesis.Carcinoma is the most common type of cancer. It begins in the epithelial tissue of the skin, or in the tissue that lines internal organs, such as the liver or kidneys.Carcinomas may occur in many parts of the body. Some common types of carcinoma include.


Basal cell carcinoma is that the commonest sort of carcinoma . Cancerous cells develop in the basal cell layer of the skin, or the lowest part of the epidermis. Basal cell cancers usually grow slowly, and they rarely spread, or metastasize, to nearby lymph nodes or more distant parts of the body.


Squamous cell carcinoma is that the second commonest sort of carcinoma . Cancerous cells develop from the flat, squamous cells that are the primary cell type making up the outermost layer of the skin, the epidermis. Squamous cell cancers usually grow slowly, and it's uncommon for them to spread, or metastasize, but they're more likely than basal cell carcinomas to invade adipose tissue beneath the skin or to spread even further
