Superficial radiotherapy is a treatment for basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. While many of the treatments for these types of cancer focus on either traditional surgical excision or Mohs surgery removal, superficial radiotherapy instead emphasizes nonsurgical treatment.
At Dermatology Associates of Central NJ, the experienced dermatology team stands behind the SRT-100™ system because it's the gold standard for nonsurgical basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma treatment.
All superficial radiotherapy occurs on-site at Dermatology Associates of Central NJ. Your doctor precisely positions the treatment device above your cancer growth and the surrounding area to deliver a carefully measured dose of superficial radiation.
The radiation goes only 5 mm below the skin's surface, which limits or prevents damage to surrounding healthy tissue. The SRT-100 destroys the basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma cells precisely and carefully without spreading the damage.
Good candidates for superficial radiotherapy can include anyone who's at risk for surgical complications or who wants to avoid surgery if at all possible. This therapy is used for non-melanoma skin cancers.
Many Mohs patients follow up their surgery with another cosmetic procedure to eliminate or reduce the scarring. Superficial radiation therapy can help patients skip two surgical procedures, the Mohs and the cosmetic surgery afterward.
If you're in either of these groups, superficial radiotherapy can be a powerful and effective solution for your basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma.
