Melanoma is a type of cancer that is developed from pigment containing cells known as melanocytes. Skin cancer is most common with increasing age, but malignant melanoma is high in younger people. About 70% people who have cancer are still alive after being diagnosed. The most aggressive form of skin cancer is melanoma. Symptoms of this type of cancer include appearance of lumps in skin, formation of acne in bones and so on. Treatments like Immunotherapy and Chemotherapy are often recommended to treat Melanoma. Usually adjuvant therapy is offered after the removal of all detectable diseases by surgical treatments. The US food and the drug administration has approved three combinations of new medications to cure melanoma. When the cancer has spread to all parts of the body, the treatments may be complex.
