See the Results for Yourself
Basal Cell cancer is present on top of the patient’s ear. The ultrasound image shows a large, dark area under the skin which indicates cancer.
Halfway through the treatment, the cancer has reduced in size externally. The ultrasound image shows that the cancer is being reduced internally as well.
Two weeks after the treatment is completed, the outside of the ear shows absolutely NO signs of cancer. The ultrasound image shows that the treatment continues to eliminate the cancer internally. At the 30-week follow-up appointment, the ultrasound shows no sign of skin cancer.
