Skin Cancer Treatment Options at Phoenix Skin Cancer Clinic

At Phoenix Skin Cancer Clinic, we understand that a skin cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. That’s why we work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and the type of skin cancer you have.

Here’s an overview of the treatment options we may offer:

Surgical Treatments

  • Surgical Excision: This is a common and effective treatment where the cancerous area and a margin of healthy skin around it are surgically removed. This procedure is often used for early-stage skin cancers.
  • Mohs Surgery: This highly specialized technique is ideal for skin cancers in sensitive areas like the face or neck. The surgeon removes the cancer layer by layer, examining each layer under a microscope until they reach cancer-free tissue. This maximizes healthy tissue preservation.

Non-Surgical Treatments

  • Cryotherapy: During this procedure, liquid nitrogen is applied to freeze and destroy cancerous cells. It’s a good option for smaller, pre-cancerous growths and some early-stage skin cancers.
  • Topical Chemotherapy: Medicated creams or lotions are applied to the skin to destroy cancer cells. This treatment is often effective for superficial skin cancers.
  • Photodynamic Therapy (PDT): This treatment utilizes a special medication applied to the skin, followed by activation with a specific type of light. The activated medication targets cancer cells. PDT can be useful for certain types of non-melanoma skin cancers.
  • Xoft Radiation Therapy: A form of radiation therapy that delivers targeted radiation to specific areas, minimizing damage to surrounding tissue. This may be an option for specific cases of skin cancer.
