Hi, folks. A close friend of mine has been hospitalized. It seems that he is diagnosed with melanoma. I know that this is a form of skin cancer. I think he will go for a surgery. I would like to know if surgery is always required for this type of skin cancer or there are other options. Thank you for replying.

Hello. Cancer treatment in general is determined by the cancer stage. In early phases surgery alone is enough for healing. I think that it is good that your friend will be operated. It means that his melanoma is in early stages when something can be done. Usually, if this is not enough, it is combined with radiotherapy or chemotherapy. Radiotherapy uses high energy X rays. Chemotherapy uses drugs. Both methods destroy cancer cells. I hope this will help you.
