Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 28 days ago

the radiation therapy didn't cure the scalp skin cancer? why did you need surgery after radiation therapy?

how old are you?

after radiation therapy, surgery sometimes is not the best idea in an area because of decrease blood flow to the area after radiation therapy

the scalp can be a very thin skin area with limited blood flow with less after radiation therapy

hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy can often help heal areas after radiation therapy

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
