Skin Cancer (皮肤癌)
Organ transplant patients are at a higher risk — up to a 100-fold higher — for developing skin cancer compared to the general population.
This higher risk is caused by immunosuppressive medications, which are essential to transplant patients to prevent graft rejection and optimize graft survival. Because these medications suppress the immune system that fights off infection and prevents the development of cancer, transplant recipients are at elevated risk for infection and certain cancers.
An article, Warning Signs of Skin Cancer, by MOSS GREENE, may not be transplant related but provides information in identifying skin cancer.
