In addition to the specialty care options available through the UPMC CancerCenter Melanoma and Skin Cancer Program, part of University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute, people also have access to a large network of community-based physicians.
At UPMC CancerCenter, patients receive personalized and coordinated treatment planning that incorporates the most advanced therapies and a range of cancer clinical trials for all phases of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers – from the earliest precursors to the most advanced stages of this disease.
The program's multidisciplinary approach to patient care combines the expertise of specialists, including:
- Medical oncology
- Radiation oncology
- Surgical oncology
Treatment strategies may include:
- Immunological, molecularly targeted and cytotoxic chemotherapy, and molecular therapy
- Radiation therapy including stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS)
Your treatment plan may involve one or a combination of treatments and clinical trials. Your oncologist will discuss treatment options with you and your family care physician, and together you can decide which treatment option may be appropriate.
