Radiation is a painless treatment option for some skin cancers

By Tacoma Radiation

Highly successful outcomes with minimal scarring and side effects

Tacoma, WA – Tacoma/Valley Radiation Oncology Centers are pleased to provide radiation treatment for some skin cancers to include basal and squamous cell carcinomas. While surgery is considered the gold standard for removing these cancers from critical areas like the face, head, and neck, scar formation is almost always present. Radiation is an excellent, painless alternative to treating skin cancers affecting these areas. Surgery can cause unsightly scarring, and in many cases keloid leaving the patient dissatisfied with their treatment results. Radiation treatments destroy the cancer cells which lead to shrinking of the affected area while healthy tissue replaces the diseased area. Treatment advantages include minimal scarring and side effects accompanied by highly successful outcomes.

At Tacoma/Valley Radiation Oncology Centers we offer the most advanced treatment planning and radiation therapy services. With our experience, expertise, and strong service commitment, no team will fight harder for a patient’s health. We have convenient radiation therapy services available in Tacoma, Puyallup, Gig Harbor, and Olympia. To learn more about radiation treatment of skin cancer and the other cutting-edge treatment options available at our centers phone our offices at (253) 627-6172.
