Melanoma

Malignant Melanoma is the most aggressive form of skin cancer. If left untreated, malignant melanoma can metastasize to other parts of the body. Though this is the most aggressive form of skin cancer, if caught early, it is very treatable and usually has a good prognosis. The characteristics of melanoma are different than the other types of skin cancer. Melanoma can develop from a preexisting mole, or as a new lesion. Due to the fact that melanomas can develop into or next to a preexisting mole, it is important to do regular mole checks. If a mole is changing color or size, see your dermatologist. Please note that not all changing moles are melanoma, but it is important to have changing moles checked by a dermatologist.
