Were you looking for information about Melanoma? Malinoma is a common misspelling of melanoma.
 
As one of the most serious types of skin cancer, melanoma has the ability to spread to other parts of the body if it is not treated during its early stages. Unusual moles, exposure to sunlight, and health history can affect a person's risk of developing it. In many cases, a minor surgery can remove melanoma if it is caught before the cancer cells have spread through the bloodstream to other parts of the body.
