Does a person with alopecia universalis have a less likely chance cancer of getting Basal Cell Carcinoma(BCC)?
i have never heard of alopecia universalis before your blog. From research hair stem cells seem cause BCC when misregulated.
Alopecia universalis refers to a particular disease entity that is genetic and autoimmune. Without hair to shield the scalp from sun and the harmful effects of direct sun light, there will be an increased chance of UV light damage, thus leading to a higher chance of the various skin cancers that are sun induced.
