Melanoma requires precision cancer care.
Our doctors treat only cancer.

Melanoma is more likely than other skin cancers to spread to the lymph nodes or other parts of the body. When caught early, this form of cancer has a better chance of responding to treatment. That’s why an early and accurate diagnosis, and a comprehensive treatment plan, is key. At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), our oncologists have experience with the growing array of precision treatments targeting melanoma, including immunotherapy. Melanoma can affect people of all ages, even those in their 20s. In fact, melanoma is the most common type of cancer among women ages 25 to 29.

Melanoma doesn’t only develop in the skin. It can also appear initially in the eyes, under toenails, or in mucosal tissues around the head or genitals, often evading detection. Melanoma can be a complex disease, so it is important to work with experienced cancer doctors who employ state-of-the-art technologies and treatments. Whether surgery, immunotherapy, chemotherapy, radiation or other treatments are among the approaches available to you, your CTCA® care team will explain your options and design an individualized plan based on your specific needs. Our cancer hospitals don’t just treat melanoma and other cancers. We offer evidence-based supportive therapies to help you manage melanoma-related side effects, including lymphedema, headaches, joint pain, sun-sensitivity or nausea.
