Radiation Therapy in New York and New Jersey

Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey offer radiation therapy to the residents of New York and New Jersey.

What is Radiation Therapy?

Radiation therapy is a non-surgical treatment for certain types of non-melanoma skin cancer.  This type of therapy has been proven effective in destroying cancerous cells without harming the healthy surrounding tissue.  Patients may choose radiation therapy instead of surgery to avoid the scars that may result from surgery.

Is Radiation Therapy Right for Me?

Radiation therapy is an excellent alternative to surgical procedures because it does not leave scars.  This is especially important for patients who have non-melanoma skin cancer in places where scarring would affect their appearance, such as the nose, eyelids, lips, mouth and ears.  Radiation therapy may also be appropriate if you have non-melanoma skin cancer on your arms, legs, torso, back or neck.  During your consultation appointment, Dr. Goldberg discusses your treatment options.  If you would like to know if radiation therapy is right for you, call our office to schedule a consultation appointment.

Will I Need to Go to the Hospital for Radiation Therapy?

Dr. Goldberg performs radiation therapy for non-melanoma skin cancers in our office.  You may need several treatments to completely destroy the cancerous cells.

Will I Have General Anesthesia During Radiation Therapy?

General anesthesia is not required for radiation therapy to remove non-melanoma skin cancer.  Most patients remain comfortable during the procedure, but if you are concerned with discomfort, speak with Dr. Goldberg about a topical or local anesthesia.
