Some Facts You Did not know
Melanoma
By: Sylvia Ray
Melanoma, also known as malignant melanoma, is a type of cancer that develops from the pigment-containing cells known as melanocytes.
It is a dark brown patch of skin, but can get worse with color it depends how bad you have it.
A normal mole is generally colored evenly (brown, black or tan), and are less than 6 mm in diameter (about the size of a pencil eraser). They can be flat or raised, and generally do not change over time.
Symptoms
Unusual moles, sores, lumps, blemishes, markings, or changes in the way an area of the skin looks or feels may be a sign of melanoma or another type of skin cancer, or a warning that it might occur.
The most important warning sign for melanoma is a new spot on the skin or a spot that is changing in size, shape, or color.
