Discovering a treatment without surgery

Mark|

Having a gentler treatment experience

Mark had Mohs surgery to treat his skin cancer and it was very tough. When he was diagnosed again, he chose Image-Guided SRT. His radiation therapist, Deanna, was with him for each treatment session and showed him images of his skin that was cancer-free after his last treatment.

Nancy|

Finding relief from the anxiety of surgery

After learning she had skin cancer on her nose, Nancy was worried about the cutting and bleeding that would come with Mohs surgery. She did not want to have a scar on her face. Then she found out about Image-Guided SRT, a treatment that made her anxiety about surgery go away.

Joe|

Watching skin cancer go away with ultrasound images

The first time Joe had skin cancer, it was treated with Mohs surgery. Surgery left a scar on his nose. After he was diagnosed with skin cancer again, he chose Image-Guided SRT. He knew treatment was working when he saw the cancer shrinking on the ultrasound images.

Jerry|

No more scarring or pain

Jerry has had many experiences with skin cancer treatment. Most were with surgery that left scars on his face and body. With Image-Guided SRT, Jerry had no ugly scarring or pain—and he was able to go out to dinner with his golf friends without bandages.

Barbara|

Grateful for a treatment choice that fit her needs

Barbara owns a boat and is in the sun a lot. She has had many surgeries to get rid of skin cancer. The last time Barbara was diagnosed, they recommended Image-Guided SRT because of where the cancer was on her body. At first, Barbara said “no” and was going to have Mohs surgery. She changed her mind and decided to go with Image-Guided SRT—and she was more than pleased with the pain-free cure.

Bob|

Recovering with no side effects

Bob saw how difficult Mohs surgery was for his friends who had skin cancer. When he was treated with Image-Guided SRT, he was relieved to have no side effects, scars, or limits to what he could do during treatment. He even enjoyed his daughter’s wedding between treatments.

Richard|
