Malignant Melanoma

Melanoma also known as malignant melanoma is a type of cancer that develops from the pigment-containing cells known as melanocytes. Melanocytes are cells that produce melanin the pigment that colours our skin. It is a less common, but most dangerous form of skin cancer and can originate in any part of the body that contains the skin pigment producing cells. Ultraviolet rays most skin cancers are caused by too much exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. Nodular melanoma is the most aggressive form of melanoma. It tends to grow more rapidly in thickness (penetrate the skin) than in diameter. Oral melanomas are uncommon, and, similar to their cutaneous counterparts, they are thought to arise primarily from melanocytes in the basal layer of the squamous mucosa. Melanocytic density has a regional variation. Invasive melanomas are more serious, as they have penetrated deeper into the skin and may have spread to other areas of the body.

Metastatic melanoma also known as Stage IV melanoma, is used when melanoma cells of any kind have spread through the lymph nodes to distant sites in the body and/or to the body's organs. Nodular melanoma is an invasive form of melanoma. Melanoma is a potentially serious skin cancer that arises from pigment cells. Oral melanomas are uncommon, and, similar to their cutaneous counterparts, they are thought to arise primarily from melanocytes in the basal layer of the squamous mucosa. Invasive melanomas are more serious, as they have penetrated deeper into the skin and may have spread to other areas of the body.
