If your physician has diagnosed you with non-meanoma skin cancer, SRT is a safe and effective non-surgical option for your treatement.
The two most common kinds of skin cancer are basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer. Basal cell cancer is a slow-growing cancer that seldom spreads to other parts fo the body. Squamous cell cancer also rarely spreads, but it does so more often than basal cell cancer. However, it is important that skin cancers be found and treated early because they can invade and destroy nearby tissue.
How Does Radiation Work?
Radiation is a very important tool in the fight against cancer. When radiation interacts with a cancerous cell, it alters the cell’s DNA (or genetic make-up) and its ability to reproduce, which ultimately leads to cell death in the cancerous tumor.
What is SRT?
Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT), a low energy radiotherapy that penetrates only a short distance below the surface of the skin, is a highly effective, painless, and comsmetically attractive alternative to surgery in selected cancers and patient populations. The SRT-100™ is the new and most advanced choice for superficial radiotherapy available today, is painless, and very similar to having an x-ray.
