Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer & What You Probably Did Not Know
Non-melanoma skin cancer has reportedly increased “33% since 2012” (Practical Dermatology, September 2019). For these skin cancer related cases, there was reportedly “3.5 million total procedures in 2018… 3.35 million being for non-melanoma skin cancer” (Practical Dermatology, September 2019). With these increasing numbers, persons are turning to their local physicians for skin cancer checks. What physicians are finding however, are that people who have one case of non-melanoma skin cancer are at a higher risk of getting it again. If you are a patient who has been diagnosed with skin cancer, it is important to check in with your physician every now and again and discuss your treatment options.
In the past, physicians have turned to mohs surgery to treat non-melanoma skin cancer. Mohs surgery involves cutting the skin cancer area out and often leaves the patient with unsightly scarring. No one wants to have a huge scar on them, especially if it affects their job. For example, as taken directly from skincancer.org, “In February 2017, Australian actor Hugh Jackman posted a photo of his bandaged nose on Instagram, saying “Another basal cell carcinoma.” This was the fifth time he’d required surgery on his nose for this most common form of skin cancer. Imagine how that must feel when your face is shown on giant screens worldwide” (skincancer.org/blog/more-than-one). This could have easily been avoided, however, patients are not being educated about their treatment options and do not know that there is a non-invasive solution to treating non-melanoma skin cancer for good.
