Skin Cancer Treatment & Resources

Making Sense of It All

Disease-specific treatment information

If you’ve been diagnosed with skin cancer, you’re likely facing decisions that may feel overwhelming. Treatment options can be hard to understand. Be sure to speak with your medical team in detail about your diagnosis and treatment options, and advocate for yourself! Ask for clarification on anything you are uncertain about.

To help you navigate this complex landscape, our skin cancer treatment pages provide physician-reviewed information about your options. Treatment options vary widely and are specific to the type of condition you have. So be sure to review the treatment page that matches your diagnosis:

Actinic Keratosis Treatment

Basal Cell Carcinoma Treatment

Melanoma Treatment

Merkel Cell Carcinoma Treatment

Squamous Cell Carcinoma Treatment

Rare Skin Cancer Information & Treatment

Treatment glossary

Each treatment page also includes links to our treatment glossary. There you will find more detailed information on the medications and procedures used to treat  skin cancers and pre-cancers.
