Merkel Cell Carcinoma (MCC)


Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare and aggressive form of skin cancer that originates in the Merkel cells, which are found in the outermost layer of the skin. MCC typically appears as a painless, rapidly growing nodule on sun-exposed areas of the skin, such as the face, neck, or arms. It has a high risk of metastasis and recurrence, making early detection and treatment crucial.
