What to expect at your appointment

History and physical exam

We examine your skin and review your medical history and outside records. We review your:

  • Lung, heart, abdomen, and lymph nodes if necessary
  • Prior blood tests
  • Radiologic studies and skin biopsies


If we suspect a cutaneous lymphoma, we may remove a small skin sample (biopsy) from the affected area for analysis. Cutaneous lymphomas may need many biopsies overtime for a definitive diagnosis.

Blood test and imaging

We may order more blood work or radiologic imaging to rule out systemic involvement.

Based on your history and physical exam, we create a personalized treatment plan. Your treatment addresses your manifestations of the disease, severity, and health.
