Treatment for melanoma may involve one or a combination of the following:
- Surgery (small lesions removed during the biopsy procedure)
- Chemotherapy (to kill cancer cells and halt the cancer's progression)
- Radiation therapy
- Immunological therapies
Perlmutter Cancer Center melanoma specialists are committed to developing novel treatment strategies that are evaluated in clinical trials. In studies like these, our clinical researchers assess new chemotherapeutic and immunotherapeutic regimens for patients with metastatic melanoma, including agents designed to trigger the immune system to fight the cancer.
