Doctors often recommend surgery to remove melanoma. For early-stage melanoma growths, you may not need additional treatments.
We consider the specifics of your case (including a cancer’s location, size and thickness) to tailor the most appropriate treatment course for you. In some cases, your care team may also recommend head and neck reconstructive surgery. Our team includes highly trained surgeons who focus on repairing tissues of the face, neck and scalp after cancer treatment.
Melanoma skin cancer treatment may include cancer-destroying medications (like chemotherapy or targeted therapies) that work in different ways. In some cases, radiation therapy may enhance treatment or help relieve symptoms of advanced disease. Learn more about cancer treatments.
Our dermatologists work closely with several types of cancer doctors, including surgical oncologists, medical oncologists and radiologists, to provide a high level of expertise and expanded options in melanoma care.
