Psoriasis and skin cancer

Psoriasis is an immune-mediated inflammatory disease that involves skin and joints. Many studies have reported psoriasis was frequently associated with a growing list of comorbidities, such as cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome and diabetes mellitus. Psoriasis also may bring out a risk of skin cancer, which was possibly due to immune-suppressive drugs, ultraviolet phototherapy, habits of smoking and drinking, or the chronic inflammatory nature of the disease. Psoriatic patients are prone to suffer from non-melanoma skin cancer; however, they have a clearly lower possibility to suffer from melanoma.
