Melanoma: Prevention and Treatment

Melanoma is the rarest and most aggressive form of skin cancer. However, if caught and treated early, it has nearly a 100% cure rate.

Skin cancer remains the most prevalent of all cancers in the United States, more common than all other cancer diagnoses combined. And while melanoma makes up just a small portion of those cases (about 1 percent), it is also the most deadly. Join us as Dr Inder Mehmi, City of Hope medical oncologist, shares his expertise in melanoma prevention and treatment.

Inder Mehmi, M.D., specializes in the treatment of breast cancer and melanoma. Raised in India, Dr. Mehmi moved to California where he received his undergraduate degree at University of California Davis, followed by medical training at Ross University School of Medicine in Dominica, West Indies. He completed his residency at West Virginia School of Medicine/J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown, West Virginia, and a fellowship in medical oncology at Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center/Cabell Huntington Hospital in Huntington, West Virginia. While in West Virginia, Dr. Mehmi was selected to serve on the National Cancer Institute Central Institutional Review Board. The CIRB is dedicated to protecting the rights and welfare of participants in cancer clinical trials. As a researcher, Dr. Mehmi is focused on applying the latest immunotherapy advances to battle solid tumors.
