Were you looking for information about Melanoma? Mylenoma is a common misspelling of melanoma.
Melanoma, a type of skin cancer, occurs when abnormal cells form a growth of malignant tissue (a cancerous tumor) on the surface of the skin. This is one of the most serious types of skin cancer, as it has the ability to spread to other areas of the body. Notify your healthcare provider right away if you notice a mole that has changed in size, shape, or color. In many cases, a minor surgery can remove the cancerous mole. However, if it is not found early, the cancer cells can spread through the bloodstream and lymphatic system to form tumors in other parts of the body.
