CTCA radiation oncologist Dr. Michael Payne describes local hyperthermia, which uses heat to damage cancer cells, and make the cells more sensitive to the effects of other cancer treatments.
Skin cancer is usually diagnosed at an early stage when it can be removed by surgery, which is generally performed by a dermatologist. At Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), we specialize in providing advanced skin cancer treatment options for those whose cancers have or spread to other parts of the body.
If you have advanced skin cancer, we will create a personalized treatment plan to help you stay strong in both body and mind. At CTCA, we take a proactive approach to your care. We will continually monitor your progress with advanced diagnostics, and modify your skin cancer treatment plan as needed. Rather than waiting for side effects or complications to develop, your care team will work to develop strategies to prevent or reduce these complications before they occur.
Throughout your treatment for skin cancer, your CTCA care team will thoroughly explain your options, take the time to listen to your questions and evaluate your needs. This way, you will be able to make informed decisions about your treatment. You may also involve your family in this process, if you desire. And finally, after your stay with us is complete, your care doesn’t end – our Survivorship Support program continues to provide support once you return home.
