High-Risk Skin Cancer Clinic / Skin Cancer Dermatology

AM I AT RISK OF DEVELOPING SKIN CANCER?

Treatment at our High Risk Skin Cancer Clinic is a good option for patients who already have or may develop a compromised immune system due to another condition, treatment, or medication. It is especially useful for patients who have:

  • An organ transplant (or are preparing for transplant)
  • Active lymphoma
  • Radiation therapy (or are planning to undergo radiation therapy)
  • Immunosuppression
  • A history of metastatic skin cancer such as squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)
  • Recurrent skin cancer such as squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)
  • A compromised immune system
  • Albinism or other genetic conditions that predispose to susceptibility to UV radiation
  • Marjolin's ulcers or chronic, non-healing wounds
  • Burn scars or thermal injuries
  • Certain medications (voriconazole or Vfend) that increase skin cancer risk

For Patients

We want to make your treatment as effective as possible.  If you are a transplant candidate, contact us before your transplant surgery so we can evaluate your post-transplant risk level for skin cancer and prepare a treatment plan in coordination with your transplant team.  Please ask us any questions you have — we want to make you comfortable and prepared.
