nodular melanoma

nodular melanoma
a type of malignant melanoma arising without a perceptible radial growth phase, most often occurring on the head, neck, and trunk, typically presenting as a uniformly pigmented, elevated, bizarrely colored nodule that enlarges rather rapidly and commonly ulcerates, which may arise de novo or from a preexisting malignant melanoma of a different type.
