Skin Cancer Treatment Q & A

Is skin cancer common?

If you’ve been diagnosed with skin cancer, don’t panic. We have good news. First, skin cancer is highly treatable – and treatments can be quick and painless. Secondly, you’re not alone.

Nearly 50 percent of Americans over the age of 65 will get a skin cancer diagnosis at least once in their lives. Your diagnosis is extremely common and doesn’t have to come with major health ramifications.

 

How do I treat skin cancer?

Thanks to today’s medical advances, your skin cancer treatment can be customized to your exact needs. For example, non-melanoma skin cancer like basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma can be treated with non-invasive superficial radiotherapy.

When your skin cancer requires specialty services like Mohs micrographic surgery or chemotherapy, we’ll work with you to find the right provider so you continue to receive the highest level of care.

From diagnosis to treatment to referrals (if necessary), we’ll walk with you through every step of your skin cancer treatment.

What kind of skin cancer treatment do you offer in-house?

Our expert medical dermatology team treats basal cell carcinoma, the most common type of skin cancer, as well as squamous cell carcinoma. Many dermatologists turn to surgical procedures to treat these common, rarely spreading types of skin cancer. We present you an alternative.

At Brevard Medical Dermatology, we offer safe, non-invasive superficial radiotherapy (SRT) to bring you a fast, effective, and painless skin cancer treatment. We leverage this technology so you can get your treatment and get on with your life.

Is superficial radiotherapy safe?

Superficial radiotherapy is an extremely safe and effective way to treat basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Radiation has long been used to stop cancer in its tracks, destroying its ability to reproduce until it’s ultimately removed from your body.

In just 90 seconds, our SRT system delivers low-energy radiotherapy to the cancer cells while protecting the surrounding healthy cells. The result is effective and painless cancer treatment without any of the scarring associated with surgical procedures.

This makes SRT ideal for high-visibility areas like the face and neck where surgical skin cancer removal would have negative cosmetic effects.
