Cutaneous melanoma

Cutaneous melanoma is a malign tumour located on the skin, usually black or coffee coloured. Some of the main risk factors include exposure to sunlight and freckles. They can develop on any part of the skin, but they are more frequent on men's chests and backs and women's legs. They are responsible for 65% of deaths due to skin cancer. Discovering and treating the illness in time is vital for stopping it spreading to other parts of the body.
