What Is SRT Treatment For Skin Cancer And Keloids?
Superficial radiation therapy, or SRT Treatment, is a non-surgical treatment for non-melanoma skin cancer and raised scars known as “keloids”. According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 40% to 50% of adults over the age of 65 will experience some type of skin cancer, but many of these patients prefer to avoid surgery or are at higher risk for surgery. SRT Treatment for skin cancer and keloids uses radiotherapy to treat your skin cancer and keloids.
How Does SRT Treatment For Skin Cancer And Keloids Work?
Radiation has long been used in the fight against cancer. The treatment works by changing the cancer cells so that they cannot reproduce, and ultimately the cancerous cells die. SRT Treatment is a special radiotherapy that penetrates to a depth just below your skin surface where cancer cells live. For keloids, SRT Treatment ensures that only the targeted lesion is treated and the surrounding and underlying healthy tissue is not touched.
What Can Be Treated With SRT Treatment For Skin Cancer And Keloids?
SRT Treatment is effective for skin cancers and keloids on the arms, legs, back and torso, and the treatment is especially beneficial for skin cancers and keloids that occur on the head and neck, such as the nose, eyelids, lips, corners of the mouth and ears.
How Is The SRT Treatment For Skin Cancer And Keloids Procedure Performed?
Dr. Goldberg may recommend multiple SRT Treatments for your specific case. The radiotherapy energy is concentrated on the treatment area with a specially designed cone-shaped instrument. Energy is applied to the area for approximately 90 seconds.
Is The Procedure Painful?
The procedure is painless, similar to having an x-ray done. You may have some redness after your treatment, and a scab may form over the treated lesion.
When Will I See Results?
The results of your SRT Treatment for skin cancer and keloids depend on the condition that is being treated, as well as the size of the treatment area. Dr. Goldberg discusses the results of your treatment during your consultation and follow-up visits.
How Long Do The Results Last?
SRT Treatment for skin cancer and keloids gives you long-lasting results. Certain lifestyle choices, such as sun exposure and ethnicity, may place you at greater risk for developing skin cancer and keloids. Dr. Goldberg provides you with post-treatment instructions to give you the longest possible results.
