Skin cancer accounts for more than 40% of all malignancies in the United States. Moreover, greater than 50% of skin cancers occur in those over 60 years of age. This population also has a high incidence of risk associated with surgical procedures due to various disorders like diabetes and cardiac diseases that can slow the healing process.
The traditional treatment path for non-melanoma skin cancer has been Mohs surgery. This surgery involves a series of excisions of cancerous tissue and surrounding healthy tissue until the cancer can no longer be detected. This procedure can lead to substantial cosmetic surgery requirements and a drawn-out healing process which can result in infection.
