The squamous cell carcinoma specialists of Moffitt Cancer Center’s Cutaneous Oncology Program are committed to helping each patient select the most promising therapies for his or her unique needs. Here, our patients can consult with a multispecialty team of dermatologists, pathologists and oncologists. Why does Moffitt take this unique approach? We believe that multiple doctors are better than one – and our outstanding patient outcomes reinforce this concept.

At Moffitt, our team of squamous cell carcinoma specialists includes:

  • Medical oncologists, who use powerful chemotherapy medications to destroy cancerous cells. These doctors not only determine which medications are most likely to be effective, but also what doses should be prescribed and what other treatments might be needed to control the side effects of chemo.
  • Radiation oncologists, who use high-energy beams to destroy cancerous cells on or below the surface of the skin. These doctors coordinate with other specialists, including radiation therapists and medical physicists, to ensure that each patient’s treatment plan is as precisely targeted as possible, and that the radiation delivery machines are properly programmed for use.
  • Surgical oncologists, who remove all visible traces of cancer while preserving as much healthy skin as possible.
  • Plastic/reconstructive surgeons, who can help improve cosmetic outcomes after surgical treatment.

In addition to these doctors, Moffitt also has a team of pathologists and radiologists who know precisely what to look for when diagnosing squamous cell carcinoma. This not only ensures that we can accurately detect skin cancers through imaging scans and blood tests, but also tailor each patient’s plan based on the unique cellular characteristics that can influence his or her response to treatment.
