In brief: Yes

Surprisingly, these can and sometimes do pop up in places that have never been sun-exposed.
Famously this can happen within the deep vulva and the esophagus.

In brief: Metastatic

Metastatic melanoma can be found in other organ like brain, lung and liver. This means the melanoma has spread from the skin to other organ systems.
