A Molecular Look at the Classification of Melanoma and its Implications: It’s
Not Just About Sunlight Anymore.
The ongoing molecular classification of melanoma and its role in the process of melanomageneis clearly indicates profound differences in the molecular signatures of acral, mucosal, eye, and cutaneous melanomas(two or more types). These observations have profound implications for understanding the etiology and pathogenesis of melanoma and at least one radical proposal for etiology will be discussed. In the future approaches to prevention, diagnosis and treatment will be altered by our recognition that ”it’s not just about ultraviolet radiation anymore”
