Skin

After having removed the initial appearance of a tumour the cancer can reocccur (metastasize) to the skin or in other sites on the body. It is always important to treat metastases to prevent progression and improve a patient’s quality of life.

To date, electrochemotherapy has been predominantly used to treat skin metastases with a success rate of over 80%.

The main skin clinical indications of electrochemotherapy are:
- Cutaneous metastases from melanoma or other tumours
- Epitheliomas (basal cell and spinocellular carcinomas)
- Kaposi's sarcoma
- Merkeloma
- Gorlin-Goltz syndrome
- Eccrino porocarcinoma
- Bowen's disease.

We would advise you to consult your doctor to find out if electrochemotherapy can help you.

The technology that can be used to treat skin metastases is Cliniporator®.
