Hi Sugar plum, There are articles on www.medscape.com about the increased risk of Melanoma in Parkinson's Disease, with the recommendation we get checked out for this. Does this happen? In the past they thought the medication (levodopa products)that caused it , but later articles blame PD itself. I cannot remember that Basal Cell Carcinoma was mentioned or any other skin cancer in that context. After all melanoma is the worst. Basal Cell C is quite common, I know several people who had lesions cut out (Myself included). It generally does not produce metastases,but can give over time nasty wounds. Mine was cut out by a dermatologist, who convinced me they were better at it than a plastic surgeon! Maybe they do more of these than anyone else. Remember Ronald Reagan, he had what they then called a rodent ulcer on his nose treated. Same thing. Too much California sunshine.
Hope you are not too worried about it, Best wishes, Kate.
