Exciting New Technology to Treat Skin Cancer Available at Oconee Cancer Center

Skin Cancer, Lake Oconee

The Oconee Cancer Center Radiation department off of Linger Longer road will begin offering new technology to treat skin cancer.

The ESTEYA system brings a small x-ray source very close to your cancer lesion. Rather than surgically cutting tissue away, radiation is precisely focused at the cancerous tissue to destroy it. Treatment requires just a few brief visits.

The ESTEYA system allows the treatment to be focused directly at the cancerous lesion without damaging surrounding tissue. ESTEYA is designed to enable safe and effective treatment of a variety of body surfaces and challenging areas -such as around the eyes or on the nose or ear. Built-in technology protects you safely while optimizing treatment outcomes.

Common side effects of radiation therapy may include temporary redness, dryness, itching or soreness in the treated area.

For more information, contact Dr. Mark Quinn, a Board Certified Radiation Oncologist with Atlanta Oncology Associates in Lake Oconee.
