16. Picture of Malignant Melanoma
Malignant melanoma in childhood is rare, accounting for less than 2% of all cases of these skin cancers. Moles may be suspicious for melanoma if they have multiple colors or if they have irregularly shaped borders. Moles that itch, bleed, or form an ulcer are also suspect. Melanoma is curable when discovered and treated in the earliest stages.
