Melanoma


Malignant tumor of the skin. It often appears as a slightly raised irregular brownish tumor. It is more common in people who have had significant sun exposure. Melanoma frequently spreads to the brain (metastatic melanoma). Treatment often includes radiation (stereotactic radiosurgery or whole brain radiation therapy), or surgical resection combined with radiation.
