Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer. It develops when skin cells multiply rapidly as a consequence of mutations in their DNA caused by UV exposure. Melanomas originate in the pigment-producing melanocytes in the basal layer of the epidermis; they often resemble moles and are generally black or dark brown.
