cancer – from prevention and early detection to today’s most

experts, UConn’s melanoma program offers many services you won’t
find anywhere else, including:
- Total body digital imaging to monitor and track skin
changes for patients who are at higher risk.

of removing cancerous tissue. UConn now has three Mohs
- On-site dermatopathology and dermatoimmunopathology lab
staffed by board-certified dematopathologists who read and

dermatopathologists, an oncologist, surgical oncologist and
