About Skin Cancer

As the most common form of cancer, skin cancer affects millions of Americans every year. Ascension's skin cancer specialists provide complete, personalized cancer care for your body's largest organ.

Early diagnosis and treatment is essential, so our physicians explain how to identify potential skin cancer; for example, the difference between benign and potentially cancerous moles. And because the right treatment approach depends on the skin cancer type and your needs, our team works with you to develop a customized care plan.

While basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are the most common types of skin cancer, melanoma is more likely to spread to other parts of the body. We provide many proven approaches for all skin cancer types, such as topical creams, medications, infusions and radiation therapy. Our surgical approaches include removing affected moles and underlying tissue, or in some cases removing lymph nodes near the cancer site.
