Melanoma

Melanoma is a type of cancer that develops from the pigment cells of the skin called melanocytes. The exposure to ultraviolet radiation or tanning lamps will increase the risk of developing melanoma. It occurs when DNA damage from burning or tanning due to UV radiation triggers mutations in the melanocytes resulting in uncontrolled cellular growth. The first melanoma signs and symptoms often look like a change in an existing mole with development of a new pigmented or unusual-looking growth with increase in size, irregular edges, itchiness, change in color or skin breakdown.

 Melanomas commonly occur on the legs in women, while in the case of men they occur most commonly on the back. Genetic factors also play one of the major causes of melanoma. People with dysplastic nevus syndrome will have many dysplastic nevi. This condition is referred to as familial atypical multiple mole and melanoma syndrome( FAMMM). The risk factors of melanoma are  increasing in people under 40, especially women. Melanomas can also occur in areas that don't receive much sun exposure, such as the soles of your feet, palms of your hands and fingernail beds and occur commonly in people with darker skin.
