I would like to receive additional information from Levine Cancer Institute.

Surgery plays a major role in the treatment of melanoma, and our surgical oncologists use the latest techniques available, including sentinel lymph node biopsy.

Some patients with early stage melanoma may only require surgery. More advanced cases may require additional therapies such as

  • Radiation
  • Chemotherapy
  • Consult to our Immunotherapy Program

Immunotherapy Program

This program involves an exciting new approach to cancer treatment that uses the body's own defense system to recognize and destroy cancer cells. Our patients also have access to the most advanced plastic and reconstructive surgery services available.

Interleukin-2 and interferon-alpha, naturally occurring hormones, are two immunotherapy agents that can effectively treat certain cancers. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved interleukin-2 for the treatment of patients with advanced melanoma.

The FDA also has approved interferon-alpha for the treatment of individuals who have had surgery for melanoma and are at high risk for recurrence of this malignancy.

Focus on the Patient

Communication with patients and caregivers is an important priority at Levine Cancer Institute. We believe that treating the whole person, not just the disease, is best for patients and family members.

At Levine Cancer Institute, we offer a broad range of emotional support programs designed to help patients and family members cope with the range of issues related to life during and after cancer treatment.
