Melanoma is a type of cancer that develops from the pigment-containing cells known as melanocytes. Mostly they are irregular in shape and brown or tan in colour. The primary cause of melanoma is ultraviolet light (UV) exposure in those with low levels of melanin. Melanoma changes its shape and is of a size of about 6mm diameter.The most dangerous form of skin cancer, these cancerous growths develop when unrepaired DNA damage to skin cells (most often caused by ultraviolet radiation from sunshine or tanning beds) triggers mutations (genetic defects) that lead the skin cells to multiply rapidly and form malignant tumors. These tumors originate in the pigment-producing melanocytes in the basal layer of the epidermis,
