Were you looking for information about Melanoma? Melinoma is a common misspelling of melanoma.
Melanoma is a skin cancer that can spread to other parts of the body in its advanced stages. Although it mainly affects adults, it can also occur in adolescents and children. Understanding melanoma prevention and knowing how to detect it early is especially important for people who have an increased risk for developing this type of cancer. People who are at an increased risk include those who have dysplastic nevi or a large number of ordinary moles. In many cases, the cancer can be treated with minimal surgery if the tumor is discovered early.
