Treatment of stage 0 melanoma
The following are treatment options for stage 0, or in situ, melanoma. The types of treatments given are based on the unique needs of the person with cancer.
Surgery is the primary treatment for stage 0 melanoma. The tumour is removed by excision along with a 0.5 cm margin of healthy tissue.
People with melanoma may be offered the opportunity to participate in clinical trials. For more information, go to clinical trials.
We realize that our efforts cannot even be compared to what women face when they hear the words ... ‘you have cancer.’
