Health: skin cancers mild doubles the risk of other forms of cancer  


People who have had a benign cancer of the skin, said without melanoma; doubled their risk of developing other forms of cancer during their lifetime, according to a study published Tuesday in USA. This research has compared the incidence of cancers dense in a group of 769 people with skin cancer and melanoma without a group of 18,405 subjects who have never had this cancer for a period of 16 years. The incidence of cancer among persons who have suffered from a benign cancer of the skin stood at a ratio of 293.5 per 10,000 per year compared to 77.8 per 10,000 per year in the control group, said Dr. Anthony Alberg of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of South Carolina (south-east), the main author of the research published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. After taking into account other variables related to the risk of cancer including age, gender, body mass index, the result of smoking or not, subjects who had a skin cancer had benign twice more likely to develop other forms of cancer than those who have never been affected by this type of tumor.


The link between cancer from benign skin and further development of other forms of cancer has been most marked among the youngest participants in this study aged 25 to 44 years.
The skin cancers are by far the most common cancers and affect about one per million people per year ¬ the USA, according to the American Cancer Society.
