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 can be overwhelming or hard to understand. Be sure to speak with your medical team in detail about your diagnosis and treatment options, and 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. Because the types of treatments vary widely and are specific to the type of condition you have, 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

Treatment glossary

Each treatment page also includes links to our Skin Cancer Treatment Glossary for more detailed information on the medications and procedures used to treat patients with skin cancers and pre-cancers.
