Intralesional Chemotherapy in Kansas City

Localized Chemotherapy for Optimized Results

When you’re looking for advanced skin cancer treatments, it’s important you find a provider who is a master in the science of skin.

Every year, tens of thousands of patients from across the metro trust Kansas City Skin and Cancer Center to handle their most critical skin health needs. An alternative treatment for appropriately selected skin cancers in patients looking to avoid surgery/more invasive treatment, intralesional chemotherapy in Kansas City is an effective option for select patients and their skin cancers.

A small amount of the medications utilized in traditional chemotherapy are injected directly into the area of skin cancer. This is ideal for certain patients who are not ideal surgical candidates. The risks and benefits of this treatment would be unique to each patient, and your physician or practitioner would discuss this with you.
