melanoma programThe Melanoma Program

The Melanoma Program at the Lifespan Cancer Institute is staffed by medical specialists trained in dermatology, dermatopathology, melanoma, surgical oncology, radiation oncology, and medical oncology.  A multidisciplinary melanoma clinic and melanoma tumor board meet once a week to discuss patient care.

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States; melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer. According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), more than 75,000 cases of melanoma are diagnosed in the United States each year.

Patients are advised to schedule skin examination screenings once a year. During this examination, our specialists evaluate each patient for signs of melanoma. If recognized in the early stages, melanoma most often can be treated quickly and successfully.
