While treatment for early-stage skin cancer is often straightforward, skin cancers that have the tendency to spread to other parts of the body are more difficult to treat and are associated with lower survival rates. This is especially true for melanoma, which is the deadliest type of skin cancer.
Luckily, treatment for melanoma has come a long way over the last decade, and at Lehigh Valley Topper Cancer Institute, we offer the latest treatments for this condition and a multidisciplinary approach to care. This involves evaluation by a team of experts from various specialties who develop an individualized treatment plan for each patient.
“Lehigh Valley Topper Cancer Institute has vast expertise treating all types of skin cancer, from early-stage cases to those that have spread to other parts of the body,” Blackham says. “Along with offering a multidisciplinary approach to care, we provide access to a variety of clinical trials and treatment options that are not available anywhere else in the region.”
