Skin Cancer Treatments
We provide the latest treatment approaches for melanoma and other skin cancers. Our board-certified medical oncologists, surgeons and radiologists are highly trained and use advanced technology to achieve the best results for skin cancer patients.
Depending upon your diagnosis, your care might include one or more of these skin cancer treatments:
Organizing Your Treatment
According to the type of skin cancer being treated, our medical oncologists evaluate test results, make recommendations, oversee the development of your treatment plan, administer certain therapies and monitor your progress. Our team works with your dermatologist or primary care provider to assure your on-going care.
Skin Cancer Nurse Navigator
Patients also receive help from the skin cancer nurse navigator, who is available to answer questions, help arrange appointments and offer support throughout treatment. Please contact Betty Cummings at 215-481-3191 or e-mail email@example.com.
Cancer Inpatient Unit
Sometimes it’s necessary for cancer patients to be admitted to the hospital for treatment. Our dedicated oncology unit in Abington Memorial Hospital has 27 private rooms and provides a full medical/surgical facility. The highly skilled staff in this unit is specially trained in caring for patients in all phases of cancer treatment. Our certified oncology nurses and certified chemotherapy nurses have advanced education in cancer care and therapies. They also provide information and emotional support. The unit has an “open door” visiting policy, with no restrictions by hour or age.
Cancer Pain Management Team
Pain may be managed with oral analgesics, but other options are available if symptoms persist. Our pain management team uses the latest techniques to alleviate pain. Consultations can be provided during regular visits to the medical oncologist or by calling 855-235-7246. The consultation includes a complete pain assessment and treatment recommendations.
Cancer Rehabilitation Services
Our comprehensive cancer rehabilitation service, including physical therapy and lymphedema program, help patients who are recovering from the effects of cancer and its treatment. For more information, please call 215-481-2160.
Cancer Evaluation Services
A team of physicians regularly reviews cancer cases to share expertise across specialty disciplines. These free conferences review diagnostic studies and discuss treatment recommendations for patients as well as for community members seeking second opinions. Suggested options are then discussed with patients and family members. For information about having a case evaluated, please contact Betty Cummings at 215-481-3191 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
