Treating Skin Cancer

The internationally-recognized skin cancer specialists at New York Oncology Hematology are here for you and your loved ones. Each patient receives personalized care from our compassionate team throughout your entire journey. 


Our skin is made up of several layers that helps to regulate our body temperature and protects us against outside elements – such as heat, infection, injury, and sunlight. Also, our skin is susceptible to skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. It begins on the outer layer of skin, called the epidermis, and usually forms on skin that has been exposed to sunlight, but it can occur anywhere on your body.


We understand that a new diagnosis of skin cancer can be overwhelming.
