This treatment is ideal for patients who have existing medical condition that may make surgery a serious health risk. Radiation therapy is an excellent alternative to surgical procedures because it does not leave a surgical scar. This is especially important for patients who have non-melanoma skin cancer in places where scarring would affect their appearance, such as the central face, nose or lips.
