More melanoma skin cancer treatment information

For more details on treatment options—including some that may not be addressed in this document—the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) are good sources of information.

The NCCN, made up of experts from many of the nation’s leading cancer centers, develops cancer treatment guidelines for doctors to use when treating patients. These are available on the NCCN website (www.nccn.org). The NCCN has a patient version of treatment guidelines for melanoma on the site as well.

The NCI, part of the US National Institutes of Health, provides treatment information by phone (1-800-4-CANCER) and on its website (www.cancer.gov). Detailed guidelines intended for use by cancer care professionals are also available on www.cancer.gov.
