In brief: Skin cancer
Prograf suppresses the immune system and does make one more prone to skin cancer.
Since the vast majority of skin cancers remain localized, one need not worry about rapid spread. It is a very good idea to practice good sun sense if you are immunosuppressed. This would include coverup clothing and sunscreens when outdoors.
