Basal cell carcinoma is the most frequently occurring form of skin cancer, with more than 2.5 million new cases diagnosed in the U.S. each year. More than one in every three new cancers is skin cancer, and the vast majority are basal cell carcinomas, which are usually caused by sun exposure, both cumulative as well as intense, occasional exposure.
This type of skin cancer appears as an abnormal, uncontrolled growth or lesion on the skin. Basal cell carcinomas often look like open sores, red patches, pink growths, shiny bumps, or scars. The good news is that basal cell carcinomas rarely spread (metastasize) beyond the original tumor site to become life-threatening. However, if not treated promptly, they can become disfiguring.
There are several basal cell carcinoma treatment options available to patients, including Mohs micrographic surgery, excisional surgery, electrosurgery, cryosurgery, and laser surgery. These treatments all have one thing in common: the word surgery.
For patients with basal cell carcinoma, there is another option: Superficial Radiotherapy, or SRT, the non-surgical basal cell carcinoma treatment choice for removing non-melanoma skin cancer.
