Yes! Melanoma is one of the few skin cancers that speads vertically (down into the skin). It easily spreads to other areas of the body. Thus, it should always be treated.
Actually Bob Marley died from Malignant Melanoma which had metastasized (spread). The original mole he found was under his big toe. Malignant Melanoma affects one in fifty people in the U.K, It kills one in four of its victims and the incidence rate is doubling every ten years. You dont have to be a sun worshipper or use tanning salons to become a victim to this evil, aggressive cancer. Please look at this site for further accurate information on Malignant Melanoma:
