Treating Skin Cancer Without Surgery: SRT

Skin cancer is the world’s most common cancer. There are many different types of skin cancer that a person can be diagnosed with, and while some are more prone to this disease than others, it still affects one in five Americans by the time they reach the age of 70. Non-melanoma skin cancer cases, 90% of which are associated with sun exposure, have been on the rise over the last 25 years.

Once someone is diagnosed with skin cancer, they may assume that surgery is their only option. But, in recent years, a non-surgical, non-invasive device has been developed for treating non-melanoma skin cancer and keloids, and it’s thankfully, covered by insurance. It’s called Superficial Radio Therapy, or SRT, and it is available right here at Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, a Deerfield Beach dermatologist office offering the best skin care treatments and skincare products. SRT is a revolutionary, technologically advanced device that was designed to destroy malignant skin cancer cells while preserving any nearby or surrounding healthy tissue. SRT can be used to treat the two most common non-melanoma cancers, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma, as well as keloid scars.

Surgery is no longer the only treatment option available when it comes to skin cancer. Patients now have a safe, effective, non-surgical option. Surgery can be frightening, induce feelings of stress or anxiety, and cause surgical problems as well, especially for the elderly who may have pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, heart disease or are taking blood thinning medication. If there is no surgery involved, there is no risk for postoperative complications. That is the main reason why Dr. Jason Green recommends SRT, as it makes his patients feel much more at ease and comfortable about the whole process.

This alternative way to treat non-melanoma cancer has even more benefits than just allowing you to avoid going under the knife. SRT skin cancer treatment involves no cutting or stitching, has faster healing times, minimal to no scarring with very low risk of infection and no need for reconstructive surgery, no pain or need for anesthesia during the procedure, no restrictions or downtime after you’ve had the treatment, and best of all — none of the surrounding or underlying healthy tissue will be harmed. You’ll be able to leave the office of Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center and safely resume your normal, everyday activities.  

SRT skin cancer treatment is approved by the FDA for use on the entire body, and it has an incredibly impressive 95% cure rate.
