how common is nail melanoma


The United States has the greatest prevalence of melanoma, a type of skin cancer, out of all nations. This form of cancer is especially present in young adults ages 15-29 years old.

Melanoma of the nails is a type of melanoma which can manifest in people with varying skin tones, though it is more common for those of darker complexions.

If something in your nail has lingered for at least four weeks, it is time to pay a visit to the dermatologist; for it could be a misjudged melanoma. It is easy to confuse nail melanoma with a harmless growth or a fungal infection; but it is essential not to overlook any unusual changes.

Those with nail melanoma may notice strange transformations within their nails, which can include shifting in color, altering in dimension, or the appearance of a shadowy line underneath.

With any warning signs, a trip to the dermatologist is in order. Upon arrival, they may take a biopsy to verify the diagnosis.

For nail melanoma, a diverse array of therapies can be applied ranging from surgery, radiotherapy, to chemotherapy. This selection of approaches is decided based upon the progressiveness of the cancer.

Nail melanoma is a grave cancer however, if found before it advances too far, it is manageable.
