Melanoma and Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is a disease in which cancer cells grow in the tissues of the skin. There are two major groups:

  • Non-melanoma
  • Melanoma

Non-melanoma skin cancers are by far the most common types of cancer, with more than one million new cases diagnosed annually. Most non-melanomas are highly curable.

Melanoma is much less common, but more serious. Melanoma is highly curable in its early stages but may spread to other parts of the body.

We offer advanced treatments for common and rare skin cancers, melanoma, cutaneous lymphoma and other skin conditions experienced by cancer patients. Our specialists use advanced diagnostic imaging and molecular medicine for the most accurate disease staging and treatment planning available.
