Melanoma is the cancer of moles. It is the most concerning of the common skin cancers. We know there is a relationship between melanoma and sun, but it isn’t as straightforward a relationship as there is with other forms of skin cancer (basal and squamous cell cancers). The immune system plays an important role in melanoma, and it is certainly known that the immune system is affected by stress. I would like to epxlore the possbility of a connection between stress and melanoma.
