Understanding Melanoma & Treatment Options With Lynn Cancer Institute

Melanoma Treatment Options
Last year, more people were diagnosed with skin cancer than all other cancers combined. Surgery is often presented as the only treatment choice, despite the fact that brachytherapy has been an effective treatment option in treating skin cancer for over 100 years. And while surgery is still often recommended, there are new and improved radiotherapy techniques. One major breakthrough is Electronic Brachytherapy. Join Dr. Michael Kasper from Lynn Cancer Institute as we explore this proven and effective treatment option you may not have heard of.
