Despite being a rare cancer, melanoma is responsible for the majority of skin cancer deaths.

Noticing and treating skin cancer as early as possible is imperative to leading a long and healthy life. At Galt Dermatology, our melanoma specialists understand your concerns when it comes to managing cancer. We’re committed to transparency and education before, during, and after your melanoma treatment in Fort Lauderdale.

What is Melanoma?

Melanoma is a quickly spreading skin cancer that forms in your melanocytes—the cells that produce melanin. They tend to appear as any other mole, which is why routine full-body screenings are so crucial.

Melanomas are often brown, but can also be skin-colored, red, or white. This dangerous cancer affects people of all ethnicities but is more common among caucasian individuals.

What Melanoma Treatment Addresses

Due to the vicious nature of melanoma, our dermatologists may combine multiple forms of treatment to completely remove cancerous tissues. Like other forms of skin cancer, early detection is essential and can greatly improve treatment outcomes. Regular skin cancer screenings are one of the best ways to detect various skin cancers in their early stages and monitor your skin over time.

Superficial spreading melanomas

Nodular melanomas

Acral lentiginous melanomas

Lentigo maligna melanomas
