Melanoma is more likely than non-melanoma skin cancers to invade deeper layers of skin. This skin cancer can metastasize and spread to other parts of the body. It can develop on parts of the body that get frequent sun exposure such as the chest, back, legs, face, ears, and arms. But, it can also grow in areas that do not get much sun, such as the palms, soles of the feet, fingernails, and toenails. Melanoma is staged using the TNM staging system which describes characteristics of the primary tumor, and the extent to which the cancer may have spread.
