Most early skin cancers are treated by removing the cancerous cells through various surgical procedures. Radiation therapy, laser treatment, chemotherapy or immunotherapy for skin cancer may be part of treatment if cancer has spread.
Scripps physicians diagnose skin cancers and treat them using leading-edge methods that may include Mohs surgery, laser therapy, immune response modifiers and more. Your skin cancer treatment plan will depend on the type of skin cancer you have and how early it’s found.
Our multidisciplinary teams of dermatologists, oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, nurses and clinicians provide the most appropriate and personalized course of treatment for you. Should you need reconstructive surgery after treatment, our specialists are board certified. Learn more about how Scripps puts you at the center of care.
