A review published in Annals of Internal Medicine found that although several treatment methods for basal cell carcinoma, including surgery, external beam radiation and topical creams, appear effective, evidence is too sparse to determine a best option between the interventions.
“The US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality noticed that there were many treatments available for basal cell carcinoma and were unsure of how effective they were,” Aaron M. Drucker, MD, ScM, from Alpert Medical School of Brown University, told Healio Internal Medicine. “In order to improve treatment and health-policy decisions, a systematic appraisal and analysis of the existing literature was needed.”
