Treatments

There is no single method to treat all skin cancers and precancerous lesions. Choice of method is dictated by the size of the lesion, its location, its type (often confirmed by biopsy), and whether it is a primary or recurrent lesion. Also considered is the patient’s age, health, occupation and preference for treatment method.

  • Surgery – lowest recurrence rate, best long term cosmetic result
  • Cryotherapy – good for small lesions, pre-maligant or sun spots
  • Non-surgical treatments – PDT, Aldara, Efudex
  • Radiotherapy – low efficacy
  • Chemotherapy – low efficacy
  • Palliative care

Digital diagnostic computers including Molescans, Solarscans etc. are computers that indicate if the structure of a lesion is similar to a known cancerous structure. These computers need doctors to use them and interpret their recommendations.

Because of the atypical nature of skin cancers the machines have less than a perfect efficacy rating.
