Melanoma

Malignant melanoma is a serious skin cancer that arises in moles or in the tanning cells of the skin. It is easily treated in its early stages. In later stages, malignant melanoma metastasizes (spreads) to other vital organs of the body. At these later stages of development, treatment is not always successful, and malignant melanoma can kill you.

People at high risk of developing the disease are those who have:

  • a family history of melanoma, or who have had a meanoma in the past
  • unusual moles on the skin, or changing moles
  • fair skin, light hair and eye color, and who sunburn easily or tan with difficulty
  • a record of painful or listering sunburns as children or teenagers
