Melanoma

From BME Encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

There is absolutely no evidence linking tattoos with melanoma, or skin cancer of any kind, of which there are three: melanoma, basal cell, and squamus cell. That said, dark tattoos or those covering moles make it much more difficult for doctors to perform early identification of skin cancers, and thereby a dark tattoo may increase your chance of having complications from skin cancers.
