Learn About Melanoma

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer. Like other cancers, melanomas start when a particular cell or group of cells in your body begins to grow in an uncontrolled and dangerous way so they can invade surrounding tissues and potentially spread to other parts of the body. This happens when the DNA in a cell mutates so an abnormal cancerous clone of cells are produced.
