Selecting a basal cell carcinoma doctor is the first step in initiating treatment – but at Moffitt Cancer Center, patients don’t have to limit themselves to just one physician. Here, patients can consult with a number of experienced skin cancer specialists in a single location within our Cutaneous Oncology Program, opening the door to comprehensive, multispecialty treatment.

At Moffitt, our oncologists have treated a broad range of skin cancers, including early-stage and metastatic basal cell carcinomas. The prognosis for nonmelanoma skin cancer is typically encouraging, but patients can often improve their own outcomes even further by working with a team of oncologists who are familiar with their specific diagnoses. 

Together as a team, Moffitt’s doctors determine which specific basal cell carcinoma treatments offer the most promise for each patient, and in what order those treatments should be provided for maximum efficiency. Then, the patient’s selected treatments are provided by specialists who have years of experience in their respective fields. For instance:

  • Our surgical oncologists specialize in removing cancerous cells from the skin
  • Our medical oncologists specialize in treating basal cell carcinoma with chemotherapy
  • Our radiation oncologists specialize in destroying cancerous cells with radiation therapy

Additionally, we have a team of plastic surgeons who specialize in cosmetic reconstruction after skin cancer surgery. And, to stay proactive when it comes to preventing a recurrence, patients can schedule routine screenings with our dermatologists, who can recognize even the most subtle warning signs of basal cell carcinoma and recommend the appropriate follow-up tests.

To schedule a consultation with an experienced basal cell carcinoma doctor, call 1-888-663-3488 or submit a new patient registration form online.
