SEATTLE - May 16, 2019 - PRLog -- Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that develops from the pigment cells known as melanocytes. It is caused due to high exposure to ultraviolet rays, which leads to sunburn, especially at high altitudes. Melanoma is categorized into three: cutaneous, mucosal, and ocular. Cutaneous affects the skin, mucosal affects the mucous membrane in the mouth and nasal passage, and ocular affects the eye. However, early detection of melanoma helps in the treatment and increase survival rates. According to the American Academy of Dermatology 2015 report, the prevalence of melanoma is increasing and spreads to other body parts as well. As it spreads to other body parts, its treatment becomes much more complex. The rare genetic conditions such as xeroderma pigmentosum also increase the risk of melanoma and it is diagnosed with the biopsy of any skin lesion.
