Introduction:

MELANOMA:

Skin cancer is a malignant tumor arising from cells that make up different layers of the skin and is the most common form of cancer in the US. The three major types of skin cancer include basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Basal cell carcinoma accounts for the highest number of diagnosed skin cancer cases each year but melanoma accounts for approximately 75% of skin cancer-related deaths.

Following is a list of clinicopathologic cellular subtypes of malignant melanoma. These should be considered descriptive terms of historic interest only as they do not have independent prognostic or therapeutic significance.

Superficial spreading.
Nodular.
Lentigo maligna.
Acral lentiginous (palmar/plantar and subungual).
Miscellaneous unusual types - Mucosal lentiginous (oral and genital), Desmoplastic, Verrucous.

MELANOMA:

Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are both of epithelial origin. They are usually diagnosed on the basis of routine histopathology. Squamous cell carcinoma is graded 1 to 4 based on the proportion of differentiating cells present, the degree of atypicality of tumor cells, and the depth of tumor penetration. Apocrine carcinomas, which are rare, are associated with an indolent course and usually arise in the axilla.
