Skin Cancers Increase Risk of Other Cancers


People who have had common skin cancers, even those not typically treated with radiation or chemotherapy, may be at an increased risk of getting cancer again in their life, according to a new study.

The included more than 150,000 people who were followed for more than 20 years and found that women with nonmelanoma skin cancers were 26 percent more likely to later develop another form of cancer, including lung and breast cancer, compared with women who didn't have these skin cancers. In men, the risk increased by 15 percent.



A 2006 study showed there were 2.1 million cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer in the U.S.

The reason for the general increased risk of other cancers is unclear, although some researchers suspect that the cellular machinery involved in DNA repair may not work as well in some people. Read the full article here:

Skin cancer linked to other cancer risks, study finds

The risk of developing other cancers later in life increases if one is previously diagnosed with skin cancer. This is a frightening conclusion with the incidence of skin cancer increasing so quickly.
