Were you looking for information about Melanoma? Malenoma is a common misspelling of melanoma.
Melanoma, one of the most serious types of skin cancer, occurs when abnormal cells form a growth of malignant tissue (a cancerous tumor) on the surface of the skin. This type of skin cancer can begin either in an existing mole or as a new growth on the skin. Possible signs include a mole that has changed in size, shape, or color. If caught early, melanoma can be removed with minor surgery. However, if it is not caught in time, cancer cells can spread through the bloodstream to other parts of the body.
