The Non-Surgical Choice for Basal Cell Carcinoma Treatment in Austin
Each year, more than 2.5 million new cases of basal cell carcinoma are diagnosed in the U.S. It is the most frequently occurring form of skin cancer.
Basal cell cancer can be caused by intense sun exposure as well as cumulative sun exposure over time. It is an abnormal, uncontrolled growth or lesion on the skin and can look like an open sore, red patch, pink growth, shiny bump or scar.
Unlike some forms of cancer, basal cell carcinoma rarely spreads beyond the original tumor sight, nor is it likely to be life threatening. It can, however, become disfiguring if not treated promptly.
Basal Cell Carcinoma Treatment in Austin
Patients dealing with basal cell cancer have several treatment options available to them, including: Mohs micrographic surgery, excisional surgery, electro surgery, cryosurgery and laser surgery. But these treatments all have one thing in common: the word surgery.
Patients of Tru-Skin Dermatology now have another option: Superficial Radiation Therapy, or SRT — a non-surgical treatment for basal cell carcinoma. It is the non-surgical choice for removing non-melanoma skin cancer.
The SRT-100 Vision by Sensus Healthcare delivers a precise, calibrated, low dose of Superficial Radiation Therapy that effectively destroys basal cell cancers. No anesthesia, cutting or stitching required. It is painless and causes no bleeding. With this treatment, there is no risk of infection or scarring and no need for future reconstructive plastic surgery. The SRT-100 Vision treats basal cell carcinoma, and patients have no downtime or lifestyle restrictions following treatment.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the SRT-100 Vision as a safe and effective treatment for basal cell carcinoma. The procedure takes just minutes in our office and offers the same cure rates as surgical treatments, destroying skin cancer without any collateral damage to healthy skin cells. It is ideal for patients with health risks that prevent them from undergoing surgical treatment, or patients who wish to avoid the pain and scarring associated with surgery.
