Carcinoma treatment

Carcinoma treatment

Highly successful cure for carcinoma cases

£30,690 in spring 2008 for Mohs equipment used in the treatment of basal carcinoma at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer in the UK; although slow growing it can spread deeper into tissue or bone, or develop into an ulcer that doesn’t heal.

Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is a four stage treatment procedure that involves surgical oncology under local anaesthetic to cut out the carcinoma. The tissue is mapped to see the carcinoma’s extent in the body and any removed tissue is studied to see if cancerous cells remain; the procedure can be repeated until all cancerous cells are removed. Finally reconstructive surgery is performed, normally a skin graft.

The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) has highlighted a shortage of Mohs surgeons in the UK. This grant allowed for a second centre in the Eastern region, joining the one at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

We can help to improve your quality of life, physical health, and mental wellbeing.

Some people take to the skies, run, jump, walk, swim and cycle whilst others make tea, bake cakes or shave heads.

What will you do to make a difference?

Two men from Norfolk who found themselves with cancer and having to travel for treatment, vowed local people would have access to the best treatment and support … and in 1980 the Big C Appeal was formed.
