Malignant Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that usually starts with a mole but can also develop in normal looking skin.

If Melanoma Skin Cancer gets detected in an early stage it can be removed and prevented from spreading to other parts.

If Melanoma is not removed in a timely manner, it gets deeper. When it reaches the blood vessels, it spreads to other parts of the body very fast.

Malignant Melanoma is caused due to the harmful UV rays of the sun and those people who get sun burned very easily are prone to this disease.

Melanoma is found more common among women between the ages of 40 and 60 and people who have fair skin, blue eyes and fair or red hair.

Few things that have been detected as causes behind Skin Cancer Melanoma include:

UV rays

• Excessive use of the sun beds or Tanning Beds

As well as,

• People who have lots of moles on their body are at high risk of developing this form of skin cancer.

The treatment of Melanoma is possible at an early stage and once it is removed your doctor needs to verify how deeply it has affected your skin.

If you have any question or doubt you must feel free to ask your doctor. If the Melanoma is less than 1mm thick, it has very little chance of coming back.
