There are about 35 new cases of malignant skin cancer diagnosed in London and the UK in general every day. These rates have more than quadrupled within the past three decades. Despite the scariness of cancer, there are several treatment options available for those who are diagnosed with the disease.

Also known as BCC, it is a non-melanoma cancer and usually not a fatal illness. It usually manifests as a scaly or rough patch of skin that is red or brown in color. Several treatments can be effective in treating BCC, including radiation therapy, topical medications, photodynamic therapy, and surgery which has an excellent cure rate.[/vc_column_text][ultimate_spacer height=”10″ height_on_tabs=”10″ height_on_tabs_portrait=”10″ height_on_mob_landscape=”30″ height_on_mob=”30″][/single_tab][single_tab title=”Squamous Cell Carcinoma” tab_id=”1528548114033-3-4″][ultimate_spacer height=”10″ height_on_tabs=”10″ height_on_tabs_portrait=”10″ height_on_mob_landscape=”10″ height_on_mob=”10″][vc_column_text]Of all types of skin cancer, squamous cell carcinoma is the second most common. Like BCC, SCC is a non-melanoma type of cancer and unlikely to spread. The same types of treatments are used for squamous cell carcinoma, or SCC. Excisional surgery, an operation during which the physician cuts the entire tumor out at once with a scalpel, has an excellent success rate at 90%. Local anesthesia is usually used for these surgeries, which can be completed in a doctor’s office or a hospital.

Procedures for treating or removing skin cancer vary, depending upon the type and size of the tumor or tumors. While these two common forms of cancer have high survival rates, they can result in moderate to severe disfigurement when left untreated. Surgery can often help prevent such disfigurement from occurring. Reconstructive surgery and skin grafting may be necessary to fully repair the skin.
