Melanoma

Melanoma is a malignant skin tumor that comes from melanocytes (the cells that give the skin its color). Although normally the melanoma appears on healthy skin, currently a third of the melanomas appear on melanocytic nevi (a type of skin spot), and there are also cases where they have appeared on other parts of the body (mucus membranes, especially the eye, digestive tract and glands, among others).

Among the factors related to melanoma development, are:

  • Exposure to ultraviolet rays (sun or tanning beds)
  • Light colored skin, eyes and hair
  • Multiple typical melanocytic nevi (moles) or atypical nevi
