Skin Cancer

Through specialized patient care, medical education and scientific research, the Skin Cancer Center at USC Norris Cancer Hospital is dedicated to the treatment and study of skin cancer. Our professional staff also has special expertise in the treatment of melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer.

As part of an academic medical center, we treat some of the most complex cases in the Los Angeles area. Our multidisciplinary team approach means that our medical, surgical and radiation cancer specialists are conveniently located in one place, bringing their combined skills and expertise to your plan of care.

The Skin Cancer Center takes a carefully balanced approach to patient care, integrating clinical research and innovative programs that emphasize maintaining your quality of life, despite a cancer diagnosis. So, in addition to our team of skilled medical oncologists, surgeons, immunotherapists, pathologists and dermatologists, we provide you and your family with access to a comprehensive support staff, including social services, care management, pain management, patient education and an experienced nursing team.

Our physicians remain at the forefront of therapy by participating in clinical trials for all stages of melanoma, which means you may have access to new treatments that may not be available at other hospitals.
