With more than 10,000 patient visits a year, skin cancer patients at the University of Michigan are seen in one of the premier Skin Cancer Program's regionally and nationally. The Program offers treatment for:
- high-risk basal cell carcinoma
- Merkel cell cancer and the entire spectrum of rarer cancers

Patient Care and Treatment
Specially trained skin cancer teams made up of surgeons, dermatologists, oncologists, plastic surgeons, radiation oncologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers and dietitians work together to provide exceptional care and innovative treatment options for each patient.
Depending on the type of skin cancer that is diagnosed - primarily through a confirmed biopsy - treatment options could include Mohs Surgery, or one of the latest treatment options for rare skin cancers. Our specialized team is also involved in research to understand the molecular basis of skin cancer to drive the future of treatment and prevention options.
Patients also have access to support systems for themselves and their caregivers through the Comprehensive Cancer Center's Patient Support Services.
