One of the most important decisions you’ll make as you begin having melanoma is selecting your doctor and treatment team. As this changes very rapidly, so choose a skin cancer doctor who regularly sees melanoma patients, and is more likely to be abreast of the latest advancements.
You can search online to find out the hospitals that can meet the quality standards and are accredited. Keep in mind, though, that accreditation does not necessarily mean the hospital has expertise in cancer care. So, you can take help from a family or friend to give you a referral of a doctor if they had a good experience in skin cancer treatment. Similarly, you can also consult with a primary care physician if they have an interest in skin cancer-related treatment.
