Skin Cancer Q&A

VIDEO | 24:00

Doctors from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center answer questions about skin cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. The panelists discuss a variety of topics, including sentinel lymph node biopsy, less common risk factors for skin cancer, surveillance for people who have been treated for skin cancer, and current approaches to treating advanced (metastatic) melanoma.

The doctors also discuss ongoing efforts to identify skin cancer at an earlier stage, when it is easier to treat, and clinical research to develop less-invasive, more effective therapies for patients with metastatic disease. They encourage patients to seek treatment at a medical center that has a team of physicians who are experienced in treating skin cancer.
