Actinic Keratosis Treatment

 

Although actinic keratoses are precancerous skin cells, they are typically treated in much the same manner as skin cancers, via the following procedures:

 

  • Cryosurgery: freezing and killing precancerous cells

  • Curettage: scraping away precancerous cells

  • Electrodesiccation: killing precancerous cells with electricity

 

Treatments include:

     Picato (a natural anti-cancer agent found in an Australian plant)

     5-fluorouracil (Efudex and Carac)

     imiquimod (Aldara and Zyclara)

     Solaraze, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory gel
