It was recently reported in the Dermatology Times that there is a greater risk of a woman developing breast cancer if she also has a lot of moles. Separate studies were done in the United States and France. The study done in the United States revealed that women who had 15 or more moles on a single arm were 35% more likely to develop breast cancer then women who had no moles. There is a theory that estrogen is the common factor that influences the growth of moles as well as the growth of breast tumors. This study is another reason to make sure that both men and women have regular skin cancer screenings, as men are not immune to breast cancer. Remember to perform self skin and breast examinations also!
