Skin cancer is now the most common of all cancers and accounts for nearly half of all cancers in the United States. Affiliated Dermatology is now using a new technology to help treat patients effectively, without going under the knife.
The statistics are scary.
Dr. Christine Lin with Affiliated Dermatology has been treating skin cancer patients her entire career, but now she has a new tool to use, which means her patients don’t have to go under the knife.
It’s called SRT or superficial radiation therapy.
SRT has been around for a long time, but the technology now allows doctors to use it more effectively.
For Steve Elson who has cancer on his nose, surgery wasn’t an option so SRT was a perfect fit.
