Ask the Doc

Ask the doctor is a regular feature where we ask our doctors to share the answers to some of the most common questions their patients ask. They also use this as an opportunity to share helpful information about topics that will keep you healthy.

The key to an improved outcome in treating melanoma is an early diagnosis. Prevent what you can, diagnose early, treat completely and follow up. The great part is that with melanoma – prevention, early diagnosis and follow up can be done at home.
