An Alternative to Surgery for Treating Skin Cancer
Date:4/16/2008

DANBURY, Conn., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- May is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month. TOPEX, Inc. located in Danbury, CT is helping to fight this disease with a low energy or superficial x-ray therapy system specially designed for this treatment procedure. This new system provides an alternative to surgery for treating basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas, especially for primary lesions requiring difficult or extensive surgery with sensitive structures in the head and neck regions -- the fold in the nose, eyelids, lips, corner of the mouth, and the lining of the ear that would otherwise lead to a poor cosmetic outcome. These treatment procedures do not require the use of anesthetics and eliminates the need for skin grafting when surgery could result in a less than desirable cosmetic outcome. This procedure also benefits those patients who have a fear of surgery or a needle phobia, for those patients who have contraindications for reconstructive surgery that are taking anti-coagulants and blood thinners and for those that cannot tolerate general anesthesia. The high clinical outcome cure rate and low recurrence for this type of x-ray procedure is demonstrated in a clinical paper from the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Volume 53, Issue 6, December 2005.

Over 1.0M new skin cancer cases are diagnosed annually and increasing at a rate of 4% per year. Increased exposure to the sun without skin protection and a decreasing natural ozone layer are cited as the chief causes of this increase -- a problem estimated at over $1B in annual medical treatment expenses. Over 80% of skin cancers occur in the head and neck regions with 50% occurring in those over 60 years of age. The over 60 population is rising and is expected to double in size by 2025.
