Melanoma is a highly malignant tumor of melanin-forming cells (melanocytes)

There are most commonly found in the skin (resulting from sunlight exposure), but also in the eyes and mucous membranes. Metastasis to other regions of the body is also common.

Vaccines are being developed as an immunotherapy, as chemotherapy has not proven successful.
