Cll (chronic lymphocytic leukemia) does increase the risk of developing skin cancers, both melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers, also known as cutaneous squamous cell or basal cell carcinomas. Some studies have reported that cll patients have up to double the risk of these cancers as compared to the general population. These cancers can sometimes be more aggressive in cll patients as well.
