I had scc on face, bowens on leg & now diagnosis breast cancer (focal scc also), is there a link having skin cancer & breast cancer ?

Dr. Liawaty Ho Dr. Ho

Probably not: No correlation between squamous cell cancer of the skin with breast cancer. Scc of the skin- including bowen's disease which is squamous carcinoma in situ of the skin- are related to uv exposures. Breast cancer with a focal scc- is suspicious for metaplastic carcinoma of the breast- a very rare type of breast cancer. There is a relation between metaplastic cancer with brca 1 mutation. ...Read more
