Northwestern Skin Cancer Institute is offering a non-surgical skin cancer treatment option with ultrasound guided Superficial Radiation Therapy (IG-SRT). Radiation penetrates only the skin’s surface with a precise dose to remove basal and squamous cell carcinomas. SRT can also be an appropriate non-surgical treatment option for keloids.
SRT safely destroys cancerous cells without damaging healthy surrounding tissue. Physicians view treatment areas with high-frequency ultrasound allowing them to assess progress during the course of treatment.
Individual treatments last just a few minutes and with cure rates as high as 95% for non-melanoma skin cancer. SRT can be an alternative skin cancer treatment to other surgical options. SRT can be used to treat skin cancer lesions almost anywhere on the body including on the head and neck where skin cancer often occurs but also on the arms, legs and back.
Some of the benefits of SRT are:
· Short treatment sessions
· No anesthesia, cutting or pain
· No downtime following treatment
· No scarring
· No need for reconstructive surgeries
Your physician will discuss with you if IGSRT is an appropriate form of treatment for your condition.
