At Rush, physicians from many specialties, including dermatology, oncology, surgery, pathology and radiology, work together to provide you with a melanoma treatment plan that suits your needs.
In addition, melanoma care at Rush emphasizes monitoring and prevention. Photographic surveillance of high-risk moles can monitor changes over time, allowing cancer to be found early when it is most treatable. Patients also receive counseling on the following prevention strategies:
- Performing skin self-exams
- Detecting early mole changes
- Avoiding sun exposure
