May just be a "sunspot" or pigmented macule/nevus. ...Read more

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

There is a relation between metaplastic cancer with brca 1 mutation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
