Radiation Therapy To Treat Skin Cancer


Radiation therapy is often used with great success to treat skin cancer. It may be used:

1. If you cannot undergo other procedures because of your age or other health problems.

2. For skin cancers that are too large or deep to be treated with surgery or with surgery alone.

3. For skin cancers for which surgery has been done with positive margins.

4. For skin cancers in places that are difficult to treat with surgery, such as the eyelid, ear, or nose.

5. For skin cancers that have returned after surgery (recurrent).

6. To treat skin cancers that have spread to regional lymph nodes.

7. To relieve symptoms but not to cure the skin cancer (palliative treatment).
