The Mayo clinic has a nice summation for this.
Basal cell - https://www.google.com/health/ref/Basal+cell+carcinoma
Squamous cell - https://www.google.com/health/ref/Squamous+cell+skin+cancer
Both are quite curable with local surgery alone.

I have basal cell carcinomas (bbc's) on my face that i have had removed, are not life threatening, where as squamous cell will eventually return. They are both not malignant cancers, just unsightly.
