The Skin Tumor Center at the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT/UCC) represents a specialist expert group for the optimal care of patients with malignant skin tumors under the organizational roof of the NCT/UCC.
Its tasks include the standardized diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of patients with malignant skin tumors in accordance with the applicable guidelines in close cooperation with physicians in private practice and other treatment partners.
The key role in the treatment of patients with malignant skin tumors is played by the "Dermatosurgery and Dermatologic Oncology" department of the Clinic and Polyclinic for Dermatology. Patients are treated on an outpatient, day-care and inpatient basis. The range of services includes tissue-sparing surgery, immunotherapies and targeted drug-based tumor therapies. Special consultation hours are offered for organ transplant patients and patients with cutaneous lymphomas. Regular consultation hours for sarcoma patients are held at the superordinate NCT/UCC.
Through the weekly interdisciplinary skin tumor board, the Skin Tumor Center cooperates with other institutions of the University Hospital, including surgery, internal medicine, pathology, radiotherapy, nuclear medicine and radiology.
The study center of the Skin Tumor Center provides access to novel drugs and innovative therapies through clinical trials.
