Being diagnosed with skin cancer can be alarming, and we understand that. It is natural to feel frightened, confused and even angry about a skin cancer diagnosis. However, you’re not alone. Nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) affects millions of people each year.
But there is good news. Unlike in years past, when the only options for treating skin cancer included high doses of radiation, or surgery to remove the skin cancer cells, patients with nonmelanoma skin cancers now have options. At Skin Cancer RX, we are here to help patients in Orange County to alleviate fears, clear up any confusion, and explain the non-invasive, no recovery-time options available today to treat your skin cancer.
The skin cancer treatment options available today to treat your Low and High Risk Basal Cell Carcinomas (BCCs), Squamous Cell Carcinomas (SCCs), Keloids, Keratoacanthomas, Pterygium (Surfer’s Eye), Kaposi’s Sarcoma, Merkel Cell Carcinoma, Eccrine Porocarcinoma, Sebaceous Carcinoma, and Cutaneous Lymphoma, don’t need to be painful, leave horrible scars, or expose you to high levels of radiation.
Instead, Electronic BrachyTherapy uses a miniature x-ray source to generate radiation internally, so as to avoid extensive radiation exposure to healthy tissues. This low-dose x-ray therapy is able to be delivered quicker than traditional radiation methods of skin cancer treatment. Electronic BrachyTherapy is painless, noninvasive, and reduces scarring caused by skin cancer surgery. It is primarily used by Skin Cancer RX expert skin cancer physicians to treat the face, including the nose, eyes, scalp, chin, ears, forehead and cheeks.
Electronic BrachyTherapy provided by Skin Cancer RX is perfect for patients who have been diagnosed with nonmelanoma skin cancer, who prefer to avoid surgery, due to contraindications including blood-thinning medication, or due to the skin cancer’s location on a cosmetically sensitive area (nose, eye, cheek, ear and scalp). BrachyTherapy has proven to be safe and effective and is available as an outpatient procedure requiring virtually no recovery time.
