A melanoma is a tumor produced by the malignant transformation of melanocytes and is most commonly cutaneous. Although melanoma accounts for a very small percentage of all skin cancers, it is responsible for the most skin cancer-related deaths. The worldwide incidence has steadily increased over the past five decades, with annual rates rapidly rising among many fair-skinned populations that predominate regions like North America, Northern Europe, Australia, and New Zealand.
