Non-melanoma Skin Cancer

Photodynamic therapy can be used to treat larger or multiple superficial basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas. It is a useful tool for those lesions in cosmetically sensitive areas and for lesions on sites that are likely to heal poorly from other surgical treatments. Compared with conventional modalities such as excision and curettage, photodynamic therapy offers a significant advantage in terms of healing and cosmetic outcome when treating larger or more numerous superficial skin cancers.
