Talk With AIM’s Melanoma Expert

Do You Have Questions About Melanoma?

AIM at Melanoma knows that a melanoma diagnosis can be confusing, but you don’t have to handle it alone. That’s why our team includes a specialized physician assistant to help you navigate through the entire spectrum of care. Our melanoma medical expert can provide accurate answers to a wide range of melanoma questions on a confidential basis.

We can help you with:

General questions about melanoma prevention, symptoms, and screening, such as “What should I do to prevent melanoma? What are the symptoms of melanoma? I have a family history of melanoma, should I get genetic testing?”

Questions related to a melanoma diagnosis, treatment, clinical trials, and survivorship, such as, “What does my diagnosis mean? What are the stages of melanoma? What are my treatment options? Could I be eligible for a clinical trial?”

Questions about side effects you might experience during melanoma treatment and questions about will happen during and after treatment.

AIM’s medical expert cannot give medical advice or diagnose medical problems.
