What is Mucosal Melanoma?

The journey toward complete remission begins with knowing essential information about your disease.

Melanoma is the uncontrolled growth of melanocytes, the cells responsible for pigmentation. While melanomas often appear in the skin, mucosal melanomas do not. Instead, they arise in the mucous membranes, or moist surfaces, of areas inside the body.

Mucosal melanoma can occur in the following areas:

  • Head
  • Eyes
  • Nasal cavity
  • Paranasal sinuses
  • Mouth
  • Neck
  • Respiratory tract
  • Gastrointestinal tract
  • Vulva and vagina
  • Anus

Mucosal Melanoma Symptoms in Men and Women

Signs of mucosal melanoma vary based on its location.

Symptoms of mucosal melanoma of the head and neck:

  • Nose bleeds
  • Painless bleeding lump
  • Discoloration in the mouth
  • Loss of smell
  • Nasal obstruction
  • Ulceration
  • Ill-fitting dentures

Symptoms of vulvovaginal melanoma in women:

  • Vulvar discoloration
  • Itching
  • Bleeding
  • Discharge
  • Ulceration
  • A noticeable mass
  • Pain during and/or after intercourse

Symptoms of anorectal melanoma:

  • Bleeding
  • Anal or rectal pain
  • A mass
  • Change in bowel habits, such as diarrhea or constipation

If you have persistent symptoms, see your doctor immediately.

Mucosal Melanoma Causes

The exact cause of mucosal melanoma is unknown. Unlike other melanomas, UV rays do not contribute to mucosal melanoma development. There are, however, factors that may increase one’s risk. For example, most individuals with mucosal melanoma are over the age of 65, and the risk continues to rise with age.

Other possible risk factors for mucosal melanoma may include the following.

In the areas of the mouth:

In the area of the vagina or vulva:

  • Genetics
  • Infection with viruses
  • Having chronic inflammatory disease
  • Exposure to chemical irritants

In the area of the anus or rectum:

  • HIV or human immunodeficiency virus

If you have risk factors for mucosal melanoma, discuss prevention with your doctor.

Diagnosing Mucosal Melanoma

Early diagnosis is key to improving your mucosal melanoma prognosis and life expectancy.

The most important diagnostic test is a biopsy of the suspicious tissue. If the pathology report indicates melanoma, the patient may undergo additional tests and examinations to determine if the cancer has spread further. The procedures may include:

  • Biopsy of the mucosal melanoma
  • CT and/or MRI scan to assess the primary site of disease
  • CT and/or PET scan to examine for metastases and lymph node involvement
