Skin brachytherapy

Skin brachytherapy is a non-invasive treatment for early non-melanoma skin cancer that can be an effective alternative to surgery.

Overview

Skin brachytherapy is a non-invasive treatment for early non-melanoma skin cancer that can be an effective alternative to surgery.

The treatment is suitable for those who wish to avoid surgery for medical or cosmetic reasons. It is also effective for patients on anticoagulants (blooding thinning medication) with no change to medication required during treatment. This treatment uses low energy x-rays to target the cancerous site, with the ability to treat multiple lesions at once.

Icon Cancer Centre in Australia was the first in Asia-Pacific to provide skin brachytherapy treatment via the Esteya machine – a highly mobile device allowing for ease of access and precise accuracy to the cancer site.
