Melanoma and Onco-Dermatology


Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that develops from the pigment-producing cells called melanocytes. It is the most aggressive and dangerous form of skin cancer, as it can spread rapidly to other parts of the body if not detected and treated early. Onco-dermatology is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of skin cancers, including melanoma, as well as other skin conditions related to cancer or its treatments.
