Melanoma

Melanoma

Melanoma is a serious skin cancer that involves the uncontrolled growth of melanin producing skin cells (melanocytes). Melanin is a pigment responsible for skin and hair colour. Melanoma can develop in an existing mole, freckle or the normal skin of body parts exposed to sun such as shoulders, head, and the lower leg. Melanoma responds well to treatment, if diagnosed early. Nowadays, cases of melanoma are increasing due to increase of sunbathing practices and use of tanning beds.
