Melanoma Clinical Nurse Navigator
A unique asset to a skin cancer program, Hoag offers dedicated clinical nurse navigators that help the patient and their families through diagnosis and treatment to survivorship.
Our Comprehensive, Evidence-Based Program
The Hoag Melanoma & Complex Skin Cancer Program was developed to focus on you and the multiple aspects of care you may need throughout your journey. We are proud to offer one of the most complete and comprehensive programs, including Mohs surgery, in Orange County.
We offer a combined program between the Cancer Center and community dermatologists. The key to melanoma and other complex skin cancers is early diagnosis and early intervention—this is because the more extensive the cancer is, the more serious the problem is and the more significant the treatment can be.
Hoag Family Cancer Institute offers comprehensive support services centered around you and your family. From support groups to one-on-one counseling, to educational and mind, body, spirit workshops, Hoag Oncology Support Services supports the whole person, and can link you to numerous resources for other types of support.
Gain hope and insight as you read the personal accounts from people who’ve been on a journey similar to yours. Perhaps you’ll have a story of your own that will one day inspire others.
