Melanoma is skin cancer development in the melanocytes, cells that make melanin, the dark pigment in our skin. UV exposure, previous history of skin cancer or melanoma, family history of melanoma, lighter skin colour, light hair colour, immunosuppression, and dysplastic and congenital nevi are just a few of the risk factors.
Melanoma has more metastatic potential than other types of skin cancers. A small melanoma, commonly mistaken for a mole, can be more likely to spread to other body parts if it has increased thickness, which can be difficult to judge on a visual inspection alone. Thus, if you have a newly identified pigmented lesion, you should seek medical attentionimmediately
