One word you don’t want to hear from your dermatologist during his diagnosis is melanoma, a type of skin cancer that begins as a small dark brown or black mole on the body.

Melanoma is dangerous for both humans and cats, but humans are fortunate in being able to monitor their skin for unusual growths, while on cats the melanoma may be well hidden underneath the hair. In some cases, an early melanoma may not be life threatening, but, sadly, many cats have died from this cancer.
