Melanoma begins as a skin lesion or spot. The most common melanoma is superficial spreading, which stays in the tissue of origin.

Overview

This type of skin cancer is treatable. Early-stage melanoma usually requires surgery. We may remove very thin affected areas when we collect your cells for testing. In other cases, we may perform a second surgery to complete the removal. Melanoma can advance to other areas of your body and cause serious complications. In such cases, our team will focus on those areas in order to give you comprehensive care.
