Kimberly and Eric J. Waldman Melanoma and Skin Cancer Center
Awareness about skin cancer has grown in recent years. Many of us are taking more precautions. But many people don’t realize that skin cancer can occur anywhere on your body—even parts not exposed to the sun. At Mount Sinai’s Kimberly and Eric J. Waldman Melanoma and Skin Cancer Center, you will receive an expert and thorough examination. And the good news is that most forms of skin cancer are treatable, and the success rate is high.
