A guide to advanced skin cancer treatment in India

Many individuals remain unaware of the fact that they could be afflicted with skin cancer. It is only when complications cross a certain threshold do they come to know that their affliction is serious. More often than not, a lot of people in India resort to self-medication. This is a hit or miss method with greater chances for complications. It is a fact that such problems will far outweigh the shortcuts or savings in cost by resorting to self-medication. Here is what you need to know about the various treatments for Skin cancer India.

Diagnosis of skin cancer

A close physical examination of the skin by a trained and experienced dermatologist will help to reveal the first indications of cancer such as       moles and dry patches or blotches in the skin. In the event of the necessity of a closer physical examination, a dermo-scope helps to actually throw light on the skin for an intense scrutiny. Further confirmation of skin cancer is obtained by biopsy of the sample that is removed.

Intervention for skin cancer

The treatment for skin cancer depends on the nature of the cancer and the extent. Many non-surgical methods are available for first line treatment. This includes chemotherapy, photodynamic therapy, cryotherapy, radiation therapy and immunotherapy.  However, it needs to be borne in mind that though non-surgical methods are used for treating skin cancer, the chances of recurrence will continue to remain high, which can be effectively tackled by surgical options.

Drill deep to the actual skin cancer surgical procedure

The actual skin cancer surgery post biopsy involves repeated procedures for 100% elimination and to prevent a relapse or recurrence.  Some of the skin cancer surgeries are performed with local anaesthesia. The cancerous portion is excised surgically and the tumour is actually scraped using a curette. The cells that are adjacent to the removed cancerous cells are actually cauterised using a sophistical electrical needle. Other methods involve a layer by layer approach to detect the presence or absence of cancer cells. Depending on the nature of the cancer and the extent to which it has affected, surgical procedures are chosen by the specialists.
