Once melanoma spreads from your skin into other parts of your body, it becomes increasingly difficult to treat. Therefore, it is imperative that you visit a skin cancer specialist like Dr Gross right away. Dr Gross can provide an accurate diagnosis as well as melanoma treatment in Reno NV.
Options for Melanoma Treatment in Reno NV
Your options for melanoma treatment in Reno NV will vary according to how developed the cancer is when it is diagnosed. Melanomas that are just beginning to develop can be removed with a surgical excision. The larger the melanoma grows, the deeper and wider the excision will have to be in order to make sure that all of the cancerous cells are removed. For later stage melanomas, a combination of surgery and other treatments like chemotherapy, immunotherapy, or radiation therapy may be required. If you have any questions about melanoma treatment in Reno NV, just ask Dr Gross.
