Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Failed skin graft for skin cancer. Skin of a 65 year old man after having a malignant melanoma (cancerous growth) surgically removed. Melanoma is a skin cancer that arises from melanocytes, the cells that produce the pigment melanin that give skin its colour. The main cause of melanoma is exposure to ultraviolet radiation in sunlight. It is an aggressive cancer that often spreads (metastasises) to other parts of the body. The tumour was excised and a skin graft was placed over the wound, but it has broken down to reveal the internal tissue.
