If we discover palmar melanoma early, you may need only surgery. A more advanced cancer may require radiation or chemotherapy.

Overview

Our surgical oncologists may use a simple surgical procedure or minimally invasive, video-assisted surgery, which minimizes pain and recovery time. Our radiation oncology team may perform radiation therapy to kill or shrink the cancer cells, while minimizing the effect on other organs. A medical oncology specialist will manage your chemotherapy if the melanoma has spread.
