[3 min watch] When to use non-surgical treatments for skin cancer

While surgical excision is usually the first choice for treating skin cancer, there are times when a non-surgical approach is favourable. In this short video, HealthCert presenter and Skin Cancer Doctor Hamilton Ayres talks about the different non-surgical options and situations where these might be appropriate.

For example, non-surgical treatments such as topical creams can be a good option for older patients or those with chronic health conditions who may not heal well from a skin surgery procedure.

Curettage and cautery can be useful in non-invasive, non-melanoma skin cancers and Bowen’s disease, and in patients whose work or leisure commitments might prevent their stitches from healing.
