Treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) in cosmetically sensitive locations can be challenging. Methods of treatment include different modalities of RT (orthovoltage x-rays, electron-beam RT, high-dose rate [HDR] brachytherapy) and surgical excision, all of which vary in terms of cost-effectiveness, local control and cosmetic outcome. In our study, we compare the local control rates, acute toxicity, and cost between electron beam RT and HDR brachytherapy.
