  • Skin cancer risk and vitiligo 
  • There is an association between vitiligo and the most aggressive form of skin cancer, melanoma. 
  • There definitely is an association with both melanomas and non-melanoma skin cancer in vitligo patients who have undergone light and PUVA (psoralen and ultra violet A) therapy. 
  •  There has not been as strong correlation for non-melanoma skin cancer ( basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas). 
  • Wear sunblockers 2-4 times daily, avoid the sun between 10-3, and check your skin regularly
