Melanoma in New York and New Jersey
Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey offer melanoma treatment to the residents of New York and New Jersey.
Although melanoma is one of the least common forms of skin cancer, it is the most serious because the cancer can spread to other parts of your body. You should always check your face and body for any unusual moles or freckles because early detection of melanoma leads to improved outcomes.
When checking for melanoma, look for moles or freckles that
- Have uneven edges and an asymmetrical shape, meaning that it is not the same on both sides
- Are black, brown or other color
The melanoma may appear as a new mole or form as part of an existing mark or mole on your skin.
Is Melanoma Treatment Right For Me?
If you are diagnosed with melanoma, you should seek treatment as the cancer can spread to other parts of your body, including your lymph nodes.
Will I Need To Go To The Hospital for Melanoma Treatment?
Treatment for melanoma depends on the extent of the cancer at diagnosis. If the melanoma has not spread, you may be able to have treatment on an outpatient basis.
Will I Have General Anesthesia During Melanoma Treatment?
In general, treatment for early melanoma can be performed using only local anesthesia to numb the treatment area, but Dr. Goldberg will advise you about your individual surgical plan and the use of general anesthesia.
