The skin is the body’s largest organ, and being exposed to the sun every day puts it at risk for cancer. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer and begins when abnormal cells in the skin grow out of control.
The WVU Cancer Institute specializes in evaluating and treating cancerous, pre-cancerous, and benign skin growths and conditions. Its comprehensive team brings together board-certified dermatologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, highly trained nurses, and pathologists — all with skin cancer expertise. They work to make sure treatment is customized to each patient’s specific type of cancer and needs.
Appointments are required for the screenings, but there is no deadline to register. To schedule an appointment, call 304-598-4500.
The Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center is located on the WVU Health Sciences campus (1 Medical Center Drive) in Morgantown.
