Early diagnosis and treatment are critical, as skin cancer can be successfully treated when caught in the early stages. At ADV, we offer skin cancer screening and provide our patients with the most advanced, least invasive effective treatments.
This type of skin cancer can be successfully treated with brachytherapy, a non-surgical option appropriate for non-melanoma cancers. This treatment involves the use of specialized X-ray that targets the precise area without damaging surrounding tissue, protecting the patient against excess radiation.
Some skin cancers require more intervention, and Mohs surgery is recognized as the “gold standard” in skin cancer treatment, with the highest cure rate, the lowest incidence of the condition recurring, and offering the best cosmetic results.
PDT, or “photodynamic therapy,” is a non-surgical treatment for low-risk skin cancers. This process uses a specific medication in combination with oxygen and light to selectively destroy cancer cells, while minimizing the risk of injury to the normal surrounding cells.
