Ans: a.malignant melanoma

Melanoma is considered the most dangerous form of skin cancer as it typically will spread to other areas of the body, including organs if left untreated.

Melanoma begins in melanocyte cells. It occurs when those cells behave abnormally, growing excessively and taking over surrounding tissues. They can develop from existing moles or skin growths, but, more commonly, they will start as new growth.
