UV safety, skin cancer, and Myasthenia Gravis
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a form of non-ionizing radiation emitted by the sun. UV index scales range from 0-11+, with the higher number meaning that the rays are more dangerous to humans, specifically the risk of long-term exposure leading to skin cancer.
Specific Myasthenia gravis treatments such as azathioprine, https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/24330255/, and mycophenolate, https://www.uhs.nhs.uk/Media/UHS-website-2019/Patientinformation/Medicinestherapiesandanaesthetics/Mycophenolate-to-treat-myasthenia-3041-PIL.pdf, can make an individual more at risk of skin carcinoma and non-melanoma cancer. This month is UV awareness month, which makes it a prime opportunity to discuss the topic.
Have you gotten skin cancer after the use of a Myasthenia gravis treatment? Was it easily treated?
