Non-Surgical Skin Cancer Treatment Option
Superficial Radiation Therapy
What is SRT?
(SRT) is a low energy radiotherapy that penetrates only a short distance below the skin. It is a highly effective, painless and cosmetically attractive alternative to surgery for most non-melanoma skin cancers.
Why choose SRT?
SRT is great for non-melanoma skin cancer that is found on the surface of the skin. It can be used for lesions on the arms, legs, back and trunk, but is especially well suited for skin cancers of the head and neck regions that would otherwise lead to a less than desirable cosmetic outcome. It is also a great treatment option for patients who are considered high risk for surgical procedures.
What to expect:
It is a non-surgical procedure that does not require the use of anesthetic. It takes less than 90 seconds to deliver the therapy. The treatment is painless. The skin will form a scab post treatment and the new, healthy skin will develop underneath it.
