Treatment

Most basal or squamous skin cancers can be easily treated by topical chemotherapy - a cream or ointment applied to the cancer - with very few side effects. Others can be simply removed in a doctor's office.

The treatment of melanoma depends upon the stage of the cancer when it is initially diagnosed. Early stage melanomas can be removed surgically. For later stage melanomas, more extensive surgery, including removal of lymph glands in the area, may be required. Immunotherapy, chemotherapy or radiation may also be needed if the cancer has spread to other organs.
