Skin cancers are the most common form of cancer. They include several types, such as melanomas and non-melanomas. Our team, which includes dermatologists, oncologists and surgeons, will work together to develop the best treatment plan for you.

Overview

During treatment, we may remove layers of cancerous skin or the tumor and surrounding skin, in some cases. We also may consider freezing the cancer with liquid nitrogen or using a laser to destroy abnormal cells. Advanced stages may require radiation and chemotherapy to either reduce the tumor’s size before surgery or destroy cancer cells after it. Our goal is to give expert, compassionate care throughout the treatment process.
