Treatment of Melanoma
Melanoma is a form of skin cancer that occurs in the melanocytes, which are cells in the outer layer of the skin. Melanocytes produce the skin coloring or pigment known as melanin, which gives skin its tan or brown color and helps protect the deeper layers of the skin from the harmful effects of the sun. It is develops when melanocytes undergo malignant transformation, become abnormal, grow uncontrollably and aggressively invade surrounding tissues. Melanoma may affect only the skin, or it may spread through the blood or lymph system to other organs and bones. It is the most serious form of skin cancer. May be cured if caught and treated early, but, if left untreated, the majority of melanomas eventually spread to other parts of the body. It is the most common cancer in young adults aged 20-30 and is the leading cause of cancer death for women aged 25-30. Melanoma is significantly more prevalent among white populations than in blacks and Asians. According to World Health Organization statistics, 132,000 cases of melanoma are diagnosed each year and thousands of people die from melanoma annually. For this reason early detection of melanoma is essential to gain the best possible chance of treating the disease. In this report we'll discuss the treatments that use for this type of skin cancer
