Everything You Should Know About Melanoma

Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that develops from the pigment-producing cells called melanocytes. Melanocytes produce melanin, the pigment responsible for the color of the skin, hair, and eyes. Melanoma is less common than other types of skin cancer, but it is more likely to grow and spread if not detected and treated early.

Our team at Dermatology Associates of Central NJ, with offices in Old Bridge, Freehold, and Union, New Jersey, has advanced training in preventing, diagnosing, and treating melanoma. Whether you need a regular skin cancer screening or expert cancer removal, we can provide the care you need.
