Skin Cancer Prevention

Experts at the Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center offer complete care for melanoma – the most serious type of skin cancer – from prevention and early detection to today’s most sophisticated treatments.

Led by Jane M. Grant-Kels, M.D., professor and chair of the Department of Dermatology and one of the region’s leading experts, UConn’s melanoma program offers many services you won’t find anywhere else, including:

  • Total body digital imaging to monitor and track skin changes for patients who are at higher risk.
  • Mohs Surgery: This is the most precise and effective way of removing cancerous tissue. UConn now has three Mohs surgeons.
  • On-site dermatopathology and dermatoimmunopathology lab staffed by board-certified dermatopathologists who read and interpret all test results.

You will also benefit from a multi-specialty approach to care by physicians from the Department of Dermatology and the Neag Comprehensive Cancer Center including dermatologists, dermatopathologists, oncologists, surgical oncologists, and researchers.
