Basal Cell Carcinoma - Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the most common carcinoma in man today. Currently the treatment of choice for this type of skin cancer is surgical in the majority of cases. Development of an effective non-surgical mode of treatment is important for several reasons. Since these tumors often occur in functionally and cosmetically critical areas, maximal tissue preservation is essential. General clinical considerations also make non-surgical removal of these tumors desirable in the elderly, in debilitated patients, and in patients receiving anticoagulants.

Controlled localized heating offers the advantage of a non-surgical mode of treatment with minimal trauma.
