COVID-19: Impact on Melanoma Patients
Jonathan P. Ungar, MD, provides an overview of melanoma and what patients can expect from their telemedicine appointment during COVID-19. Melanoma is one of the most common forms of cancer and also the most dangerous forms of skin cancer. Unfortunately, the number of cases is increasing at this time, despite skin cancer awareness. Dr. Ungar discusses who is at risk, self-detection, and prevention strategies. He also explains why early detection is so important for favorable outcomes. Dr. Ungar describes the new Kimberly and Eric J. Waldman Melanoma Center—which brings together clinical diagnosis, treatment, and research under one roof—and the range of treatments available.
