Be aware of additional risk factors
Remember that immunosuppressive therapy is associated with a higher incidence of skin cancer. Thus, inspect your skin more often if you’re under long-term steroid treatment and if you have a condition that compromises your immune function.
These measures are not only recommended for healthy people who want to prevent skin cancer. They are also important for patients with skin cancer who are under treatment or surveillance and need to avoid recurrence or spread of the disease.
