Dr. Khanna: Hi Mary, we are here today in follow-up, two months after you are finishing your superficial radiation therapy on your nose for your skin cancer. How do you feel that it went?
Mary: I think it went really well. It was 17 procedures, which at the beginning that was a little scary to me. But it was smooth sailing. He came in, went through the procedure. Every time, it took like 10 minutes, and the results were great.
Dr. Khanna: Yes, let’s zoom in on that, on that spot on your nose here. Wow, looks amazing, can hardly even tell where it is. That’s great; much better than the surgical option, I think, in terms of the scarring, for sure.
Mary: Yes, yes. And that’s why I chose that, the radiation, because of that.
Dr. Khanna: What advice would you give to people who are contemplating more traditional surgical procedures over superficial radiation?
Mary: Well, I thought the superficial radiation was so good, because I was worried if we did surgery, what scarring would there be and I am thinking, there’s gotta always be some kind of remark that, but from the radiation, there’s nothing. So, I would highly recommend radiation. I never thought I would be saying that.
Dr. Khanna: Great, the 17 treatments that it took, I mean, that’s something that scares people. Was it pretty fast though and pretty efficient for you?
Mary: It was very efficient. I came early, well, around 8:30 in the morning, got in, got out. The office people, very efficient, very friendly, very nice, and I was out in 15 minutes. So, it was not a problem at all.
Dr. Khanna: It was pretty painless for you too?
Mary: It was very painless.
Dr. Khanna: Great, well, great, Mary, thanks so much for sharing with other patients who might be considering this, this innovative therapy, thank you.
