Cancer Type: Basal Cell Carcinoma
Patient: Liz N.
Practice Location: Stow, Ohio
Cancer Location: Nose – mid dorsum
Treatment: Image-Guided SRT

Treatment

This patient received 20 treatments of Image-Guided superficial radiotherapy. Treatment progress was tracked using high-frequency ultrasound image guidance.

In this short video, Liz talks about her experience with non-melanoma skin cancer and her decision to have it treated with Image-Guided Superficial Radiotherapy.

Discovering IG-SRT

Liz wears readers when she does up close work and thought she had scratched her nose and it just wasn’t healing. When examined by her doctor, she was told she had skin cancer. As a hairdresser, Liz had a number of clients who have had Mohs surgery done on their noses and she was well aware of the cosmetic implications. When her doctor discussed treatment options, Liz chose IG-SRT over Mohs surgery.

Experiencing IG-SRT

The radiation therapist and I had a good rapport. It was very comfortable… It was wonderful. I’ve got fairly sensitive skin… I expected to have some adverse effects right away and I didn’t. Other than some tenderness I never missed a beat. It never stopped me or prohibited me from doing anything. It was right in here [Liz points to the bridge of her nose] and you could never tell.

A Better Outcome

If I had cancer anywhere, [IG-SRT] would be my option. Anybody I talk to about it, I tell them this is the way you have to go.

Cancer Type: Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Patient: Dick A.
Practice Location: Payson, UT
Cancer Location: Left posterior upper arm and left forehead
Treatment: Image-Guided SRT

Treatment

This patient received 20 treatments of Image Guided Superficial Radiotherapy. Treatment progress was tracked using high frequency ultrasound image guidance.

In this short video, Dick talks about his experience with non-melanoma skin cancer and his decision to have it treated with Image-Guided Superficial Radiotherapy.

Discovering IG-SRT

Dick was diagnosed in Southern California but put off treatment for two years because he was worried that the surgery would disfigure his ear. Dick eventually visited a clinic that offered a referral to a practice offering IG-SRT and he jumped at the chance

The Mohs method of the surgery isn’t a quick procedure because they cut some of the skin cancer out, but they have to test it to see if they’ve got all of it. With the radiation therapy they get all of it during the procedure and the procedure doesn’t take that long.

Experiencing IG-SRT

The appointments take about 10 minutes and that’s getting treated in two spots during each visit.  [Editor’s note: Patients receiving IG-SRT will typically experience appointments closer to 15 – 20 minutes in length.]

It’s kind of amazing to see… your skin structure …. and then over time to see the cancer shrink… It’s a very satisfying feeling knowing that there is no scar tissue that to deal with. You cannot tell where the skin cancer was after it’s all done.

A Better Outcome

Meagen Loveless was my radiation therapist. She is the absolute best. Meeting her was an added benefit of the radiation therapy because I really have developed a very good relationship with her.

It was a great experience. You hardly want to say that getting treated for skin cancer is a great experience, but I really felt that. I’m very grateful to all the team, including everybody who helped me get enrolled and all the way up and down the line.

If I were you, I would not be so reticent about getting radiation therapy because the Mohs surgery is going to leave a scar. Radiation therapy you cannot tell that you’ve had the therapy and the results are the same, it’s just less invasive and it’s a much more pleasant experience to go through.

Case study: #16970
Cancer Type: Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Patient: Peter S.
Practice Location: Melbourne, FL
Cancer Location: Right ear
Treatment: Image-Guided SRT

Treatment

This patient received 20 treatments of Image Guided Superficial Radiotherapy. Treatment progress was tracked using high frequency ultrasound image guidance.

In this short video, Peter discusses his IG-SRT treatment and why he felt it was a great experience.

Discovering IG-SRT

The first time (I was diagnosed with non-melanoma skin cancer) has to have been 12 or 13 years ago… I was diagnosed, and I was immediately sent to a Mohs specialist who performed Mohs surgery. Once I became aware of SkinCure, I was not anxious to get any more diagnoses, but I had a feeling I would… (and I knew I) would try to do SRT.

Experiencing IG-SRT

During the course of the treatment, every morning I would come in and they would do an ultrasound first to see the progress was, and they would look at the ear and my therapist would say, you’re doing great and keep going. I was able to do anything I wanted, I could go play golf, go swimming in the ocean, do whatever I felt like.

A Better Outcome

It’s this ear (points to right ear) and you can’t tell. It’s quite amazing.

It was a great experience. You hardly want to say that getting treated for skin cancer is a great experience, but I really felt that. I’m very grateful to all the team, including everybody who helped me get enrolled and all the way up and down the line.


Case Study: Bob E.

Case study: #4321
Cancer Type: Basal Cell Carcinoma
Patient: Bob E.
Practice Location: Stow, OH
Cancer Location: Right Ala of the Nose
Treatment: Image-Guided SRT

Treatment

This patient received 20 treatments of Image Guided Superficial Radiotherapy. Treatment progress was tracked using high frequency ultrasound image guidance.

Discovering IG-SRT

I talked to the folks at the hospital. I was offered one option. (The doctor said) “we’re going to have to cut you here and cut you here and I don’t know how deep it’s going to be and I don’t know how long it’s going to last. If we don’t get it all the first time, we’ll have to go back in.” I didn’t want to walk around with stitches and cuts on my face … I also didn’t like the idea that he wasn’t sure until he got in there, what exactly is going to happen… It was a nurse at the hospital, a very well-respected nurse (who) said I want you to go see (another doctor)… I made the appointment… and he told me I had a squamous thing here and a basal cell here, … (but we) have an option for you, and he explained (IG-SRT). I said let’s go man, no cutting, no nothing, let’s get started.

Experiencing IG-SRT

As you’re going through the procedure, on your daily visits, (My therapist) … would show me the difference in size each visit… She said yes it was working very well… so I could go home and tell my wife, yay, it’s going down, it was cool!

I thought (my therapist) was a wonderful practitioner. I know she was very well trained with this machine and most importantly… she made me feel so comfortable … She made me feel like a million dollars… There was never any pain, never any inconvenience… it sure was impressive.

A Better Outcome

I am getting a little older and things are going to start happening like this (non-melanoma skin cancer). The doctor even mentioned that you probably will get a couple more maybe as you age, but he’ll be the first guy I call. I’m not going anywhere else. He better not retire, because I’m going to go knock on his door or find somebody else that does it because it’s perfect. Perfect. Shout it from the rooftops brother, because people need to know more about it, people need to know options. I don’t want someone to cut my face if they don’t have to.

To me there is no option. I just don’t want someone cutting me. I wish I could go back to 2018 and find where I made a lot of comments about your company on Facebook. I made over 300 comments, people thanked me because they were going through the same thing… and they didn’t want to be cut.

I went (back) to (the) doctor who was going to cut me. I said I got to be honest with you, why didn’t you even mention this (IG-SRT) to me? I thought wow man, that’s not right. Now I know (IG-SRT), and I know this therapy, so I respect it 110%, maybe more. I’m a believer brother.
