Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common form of skin cancer and the most frequently occurring form of all cancers. There are an estimated 3.6 million cases diagnosed every year in the U.S. alone. Because of the slow growth of BCCs, most are curable and don’t cause too much damage when treated early. If you or a family member think you might be suffering from BCC, don’t fear, as there are many options for basal cell skin cancer treatment.
What does BCC look like?
BCCs can look like open sores, red patches, pink growths, shiny bumps, scars, or any abnormal lesion on the skin. These lesions commonly arise in sun-exposed areas of the body, as this cancer often occurs from DNA damage from exposure to UV radiation from the sun or indoor tanning. It is important to catch BCC early and look for warning signs, as this will make your basal cell skin cancer treatment more successful.
What are my treatment options?
If you have been diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma, you have several treatment options available to you. Several surgical options exist that come with risks of scarring, pain, and damage to surrounding tissue. For a non-surgical basal cell skin cancer treatment option, there is another choice: Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT). The cure rates of Sensus Healthcare’s SRTdevices compete with those of surgical treatments, destroying skin cancer without the side effects of surgical procedures.
