Treating Melanoma

Any doctor or nurse can check the skin and determine. They can remove the abnormal tissue and a small amount of normal tissue around it. If it is cancer the tissue may also be tested for certain gene changes. Most doctors recommend lymph node surgery. Other drugs or perhaps vaccines may also be recommended. Chemotherapy drugs destroy cancer cells. They can be given in pill form that it travels throughout your body. You can get radiation therapy or biological therapy.
