Melanoma & Skin Cancer Center
If you have been diagnosed with melanoma or skin cancer, you may feel worried or anxious. It helps to know that our team of dermatology experts will guide you through your options and provide you with the best cancer treatment plan possible.
The UMass Memorial Health Cancer Center offers personalized, high-quality care in patient-focused settings at four convenient locations: UMass Memorial Medical Center, UMass Memorial Health – HealthAlliance-Clinton Hospital, UMass Memorial Health – Harrington Hospital, and UMass Memorial Health – Marlborough Hospital. We work with the UMass Chan Medical School on extensive cancer research and clinical trials, so our patients benefit from the latest diagnostic and treatment options.
As multidisciplinary care practitioners, we bring our specialists together in a single setting to discuss each patient’s diagnosis and develop a thorough treatment plan. In most cases, you’ll only need a single appointment to meet with our team members one-on-one. We’ll answer your questions, discuss your concerns and attend to your physical and emotional needs. We also encourage the involvement of your loved ones throughout the care process to complement the support we provide.
Expert Care for Skin Cancer
You can feel confident in the expertise of our skin cancer specialists. We diagnose and treat common forms of skin cancer that are highly curable, like basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, in addition to aggressive tumors, like melanoma and merkel cell carcinoma.
We also offer many options for the treatment and removal of skin tumors, including Mohs micrographic surgery. The Mohs technique is state-of-the-art and used for many types of skin cancer. It’s a precise surgery that ensures the tumor is completely removed while saving as much normal healthy tissue as possible. The Mohs procedure is highly successful and usually done on an outpatient basis.
