Treatment of melanoma skin cancer available for Jupiter, FL area patients

Melanoma Cancer Treatment from Jupiter, FL dermatologist
Once diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer, patients who visit A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic, and Laser Surgery can work with Dr. Peter Vitulli to discuss possible methods of treatment.

Diagnosis

Diagnosis of skin cancer is done through a biopsy. An area of skin that may show signs of cancer is removed and sent to an outside laboratory for evaluation. The laboratory looks for cancerous cells to determine if skin cancer is present and if so, what type. Patients receive their diagnosis and then work with Dr. Peter Vitulli to discuss possible treatment solutions.

Treatment options for skin cancer

Patients with a diagnosis of skin cancer need to understand that they are not alone. Our practice works closely with individuals to educate them on the various solutions that are available and assist in choosing one that works best for their specific situation and needs. Some ways of treating melanoma skin cancer may include:
  • Radiation
  • Chemotherapy
  • Surgery (Mohs or simple removal)
  • Oncology referral
  • Which treatment is right for me?

    There is no “one size fits all” solution for patients who visit A Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic, and Laser Surgery. It is important for patients to speak with Dr. Peter Vitulli about the option most appropriate for the type and severity of cancer present.
