The first scenario is a coincidence
A few months or years after the removal of a mole, a person finds cancer.
The first question that arises is "Cancer of what? Colon cancer? Lungs? Breast cancer?".
If we are not talking about skin cancer or melanoma at the site of the removal of the mole, then it is quite obvious that there is no connection between the removal of the mole and the subsequent diagnosis. The fact is that a person by nature tends to connect events that occur one after another.
We confidently declare that at the moment there are no studies proving the connection between the removal of benign skin neoplasms and:
- increased risk of skin cancer or melanoma
- development of another oncological disease
To illustrate this scenario, let's tell a story.
There is a woman at the reception who wants to remove a papilloma in her armpit.
– It bothers me a lot, but I'm very afraid to remove it, because my mother removed my papilloma and died of cancer three months later, – the patient sighs.
– From cancer of what? – the doctor asks.
– Stomach, with liver metastases, – the interlocutor answers.
What does papilloma removal have to do with it? Stomach cancer, especially with metastases, has been developing for years! Nevertheless, a person who is not familiar with these facts, after hearing such a story, will say "here's cancer for you after the removal of moles."
