The skins Makeup
Your skin is divided into three layers. The epidermis which is the outer four millimeters. The epidermis protects against the sun and intrusion. The next layer is the dermis. The dermis is where the your pigment cells also known as melonocytes. Melonocytes is where Melenoma skin cancer starts. The dermis also has the blood capillaries, hair follicles, sweat and oil glands are. The layer below the dermis is the hypodermis. The hypodermis contains the fat cells that give the skin its hard texture feel.

Causes of Melenoma Skin Cancer
The main cause of Melenoma skin cancer is the suns ultraviolet light. The two types of ultraviolet light are Ultraviolet A (known as UVA) and Ultraviolet light B( known as UVB). These ultraviolet lights mess with the DNA and RNA in the cell and create a manipulated cell that does not reproduce properly. If the reproduction simply stops than there is little problem. However if the reproduction produces too many cells or other non functional cells you run into a problem. As the cell replicates it creates more and more damaged cells that want to replicate. This is why early detection of Melenoma skin cancer is crucial to avoid limb loss and even death.
