Nothing is more beautiful than healthy skin. But over your lifetime the damaging effects of ultraviolet rays—from the sun, tanning beds and other sources—can lead to squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). With nearly 700,000 new cases diagnosed each year, effective squamous cell carcinoma treatment is more important than ever. Left untreated, the telltale signs of SCC—scaly red patches, open sores that crust or bleed, and unattractive growths—can become disfiguring, even deadly if it invades tissue below the skin’s surface and spreads to the lymph nodes or other parts of the body. Experts believe as many as 8,800 people in the United States may have died from SCC in 2012. With the number of cases expected to increase dramatically in the coming years, more people will need treatment.
For years, traditional squamous cell carcinoma treatment—including Mohs—has involved invasive incisions that cut through healthy tissue, painful healing, lengthy recovery and unsightly scarring. Sensus Healthcare is changing all that with a non-surgical treatment option—the SRT-100™.
Now patients undergoing squamous cell carcinoma treatment don’t have to worry about permanent disfigurement, nerve damage or injury to muscles.
