Symptoms, Risk and Diagnosis

The Siteman Cancer Center is uniquely qualified in the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment of all forms of skin cancer. Many skin cancer patients require treatment from several medical and surgical specialists, including dermatologists, dermatologic surgeons, medical and surgical oncologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, ophthalmologists, otolaryngologists and plastic surgeons.

Washington University Physicians at Siteman who specialize in these fields routinely meet to coordinate and discuss treatment options for patients. In these multidisciplinary meetings, careful consideration is given to determining the best approach to treatment. The main goal at the Siteman Cancer Center is to get a correct diagnosis of your condition and decide on the proper treatment. Specialists here excel in using the technology and experience to make an accurate diagnosis, often down to the genetic level so the best treatment options may be identified.
