The doctors at National Skin Cancer Centres strive to deliver prompt, efficient and effective treatments that minimise scarring. Most skin cancers can be completely cured if detected early.

The treatment received will depend on multiple factors:

  • Type of cancer: Some skin cancers are more dangerous than others and all must be treated with appropriate techniques.

  • Size: Some skin cancers can spread out across a larger area of the skin or may have penetrated deeper into underlying tissues.

  • Location: A skin cancer on your arm will require different treatment to a cancer on a body part which is more sensitive.

  • Progression: Sometimes skin cancers can spread to other body organs, requiring a combination of different treatment methods.

Treatment options for skin cancer

Surgery Curettage Cryotherapy Topical cream
The skin cancer and a margin of surrounding tissue are fully excised with a scalpel. The wound is sealed with sutures. The skin cancer is scraped with a sharp instrument and surrounding tissue is burned to eliminate cancer cell remnants. Spraying liquid nitrogen onto the skin cancer and an area around it, the cancer is frozen and abnormal cells are killed. A cream is applied that stimulates the immune system and promotes your own body to destroy the cancer cells naturally.

Frequently asked questions

What happens if my skin cancer has spread to other organs?
Read More

If your skin cancer is at an advanced stage or has spread to other organs, you will be assisted with an onward referral to undergo radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

Don’t worry – if detected early, this is a highly unlikely outcome.

Can I choose my skin cancer treatment?

The type of skin cancer treatment you receive depends on multiple factors and your doctor will discuss the benefits and risks of all available options with you.

How much downtime will I need?
Read More

Your post-treatment downtime will vary depending on the nature of the procedure. Some topical treatments require no downtime, while complex surgical procedures may require downtime of a week or more.

Your doctor will discuss the downtime with you.

Will skin cancer surgery leave a scar?

The doctors at National Skin Cancer Centres are very skilled at performing skin cancer surgery in cosmetically sensitive areas to reduce scarring and enhance cosmetic results.

Advanced wound care with LED light therapy can speed up healing, reduce inflammation and discomfort, and reduce scarring. Speak to your doctor about including LED light therapy as part of your treatment plan for optimal results.
