Melanoma & Cutaneous Oncology

old guyMalignant melanoma accounts for a small percentage of all skin cancers. Malignant melanoma starts in the melanocytes - cells that produce pigment in the skin. Malignant melanomas sometimes begin as an abnormal mole that then turns cancerous. This cancer may spread quickly. Malignant melanoma most often appears on fair-skinned men and women, but persons with all skin types may be affected.

Treatments for skin cancer:

Our dermatologist’s are a part of Huntsman Cancer Institutes Melanoma Cutaneous Oncology Program and treat and research all areas of cutaneous cancer conditions including melanoma Basal Vell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, and Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma. Specific treatment for skin cancer will be determined by our highly skilled physicians and is based on:

  • Your age, overall health, and medical history
  • Extent and type of the disease
  • Your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
  • Expectations for the course of the disease
  • Your opinion or preference

Depending on the patient and the disease, we have several kinds of treatments for skin cancer, including surgery, laser therapy, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and immunotherapy.
