Skin Cancer Clinic

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. The most common warning sign of skin cancer is a change in the appearance of the skin, such as a new growth or a sore that will not heal.

There are three types of skin cancer:

  • Melanoma - an aggressive cancer that can spread quickly throughout the body
  • Basal cell - the most common form of skin cancer
  • Squamous cell - found in the surface of the skin as well as the respiratory and digestive tract

Experts at Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center understand skin cancer and work as a team to design the best treatment plan. A typical team is made up of surgical, medical, and radiation oncologists, as well as dermatologists, social workers, and nurses. Treatment plans may include:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Photodynamic therapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Surgery
