Skin Cancer Treatments

The best way to treat skin cancer is by preventing it entirely. However, if your dermatologist determines that you have it, then you have a few effective options for treating skin cancer.

Mohs Surgery

Mohs surgery is a more extensive and involved option, but it’s most effective for recurring or larger skin cancers. It’s also best for areas of the face where you want to minimize damage to the surrounding skin. During Mohs surgery, your dermatologist will remove skin layer by layer, examining each layer under the microscope to continually check for cancerous cells. The goal is to remove only as much skin as needed to remove the cancer.

Superficial Radiation Therapy

Superficial radiation therapy is a skin cancer treatment that delivers x-rays to the cancerous area with a specialized SRT 100 platform. This process only penetrates the surface of the skin and doesn’t damage the deep tissues, reducing the chances of scarring. It typically requires multiple sessions, but each treatment is quick, painless, and non-surgical.

Surgical Excision

This is the most common and versatile option for different skin cancers. During this treatment, your dermatologist will administer a local anesthetic and excise the cancerous area. Then, your dermatologist will make sure the skin will heal with the least amount of scarring possible.

Topical Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy for skin cancer is different than chemotherapy for other types of cancer. Your dermatologist will prescribe a topical cream medication like 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) that is applied to the area once or twice a day. The medication attacks cancerous cells on the surface of the skin and is best for pre-cancers or cancers that haven’t spread yet.
