Helping High Risk Patients Stay Healthy
Some patients may have advanced or large skin cancers, or may have a medical condition that puts them more at risk for developing or redeveloping skin cancer. Special care management and ongoing monitoring with Skin Cancer Center staff helps these patients stay as healthy as possible. This care is especially important for organ transplant patients or other patients with a weakened immune system, and patients with pigmented lesions.
