What is skin cancer screening?
When you have a full body check-up, a member of our dermatology team will perform an evaluation. Drawing from our extensive training and years of experience, we can quickly identify those lesions that are cause for concern. Any potentially cancerous lesion will be tested and evaluated by one of our dermatopathology specialists.
What does skin cancer treatment involve?
If the lesion is malignant, we provide a customized treatment plan, depending on the type of cancer, as well as its size, shape, and location. We will evaluate your current health and review your medical history to ensure that you receive safe and effective treatment.
Many cancerous lesions can be removed in a simple procedure using a scalpel. Because skin cancer typically extends beyond the visible portion, additional tissue is removed. Following surgery, the removed tissue will be sent to our specially trained pathologist for evaluation. If cancerous cells are discovered in the borders, a second procedure will be needed. If the borders are clear, the process is complete.
Complicated or cosmetically sensitive cancers may be treated with Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT). Rendon Center for Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine is the first and only office in Boca Raton, Florida to implement the newest cutting-edge technology for non-melanoma skin cancer called the SRT-100 by Sensus. This therapeutic technology is designed to provide an alternative to surgical procedures for basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas. With options from simple excision to Mohs surgery, the SRT-100 is just one of the many advanced weapons in our arsenal dedicated to providing superior patient care.

SRT-100 Superficial Radiotherapy for Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer
SRT delivers low energy radiotherapy only as deep as the thickness of the skin. This non-invasive procedure has been proven in the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancer and has been used for more than half a decade. A highly recognized technology, this treatment is typically a covered benefit with most insurance companies.
There are several advantages to treating surface skin with concentrated radiation over surgical procedures, including:
- Minimal discomfort, if any at all
- Quick, efficient procedure
- An excellent safety standard
- No anesthesia required
- Accelerated healing process
- Minimal scarring, if any
- Virtually no risk of post-treatment infection
- Lesser risk of recurrence
- This precision procedure virtually eliminates the need for reconstructive treatment
