Melanocytes are the pigmented cells present in the body, and the cancer in these cells is called melanoma skin cancer. These melanocytes produce melanin, which are responsible for the color of the skin. Due to its highly contagious nature, the cancer could be fatal. Worldwide 160,000 new cases are diagnosed by doctors each year. As it can be seen through bare eyes, early diagnosis and cure is possible through minor surgery. Treatment of the cancer includes radiotherapy, surgical removal, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy and adjuvant treatment. Melanoma is usually caused by damage of the DNA cells, caused by UV light from the sun, UV light from sun beds can also be a cause.
