Options for Melanoma Treatment in Fallon NV
The type of melanoma treatment in Fallon NV that you will have depends on the stage of development of your melanoma. 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. If your disease is very advanced, you risk having the cancer spread to other parts of your body.
