How Does my Doctor Choose my Treatment CSCC?
Following the results of your physical exam and biopsy, your doctor will determine the best treatment options for you. Doctors often use the following risk groups to estimate the chance that the cancer may come back (recur) and help plan the best treatment.
Doctors classify most non-melanoma skin cancers into these risk groups based on several prognostic factors, including the size of the cancer and where it is located (for example, head, neck, eyes, lips or is it on arms, legs or back). Fortunately, the majority of CSCC is caught early and treated very effectively through surgery.
