Protection against Melanoma – the signs and symptoms

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer which affects the melanocytes (melanin producing cells) located in the lower zone of the epidermis.

Most skin growths like moles, angiomas, skin tags and keratoses are benign tumors. But when such a benign tumor growth begins to spread to the surrounding tissue and destroys healthy cells, they become malignant or cancerous in nature.
