Case Study
The article describes the case of a 62-year-old African American man diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the nipple. The patient presented with a 6-week history of a left nipple mass that was painful and pruritic. The most significant environmental carcinogen for SCC and the differential diagnosis of nipple and areola disorders are discussed. Described as well are the treatment options for SCC.

    Oral cancer probably hasn't been high on the average pot smoker's list of concerns, despite the fact that marijuana smoke contains known carcinogens. It may be even less of a concern now in light of new research that found no link between marijuana use and risk of developing oral squamous cell...

    Several cutaneotropic human papillomavirus (HPV) types seem to be involved in the early onset of cutaneous squamous-cell carcinoma. To test the hypothesis that cutaneotropic HPV infections are facilitated because of close and frequent skin contact (for example, between child and mother), we...

    Background: The checkpointkinase 2 (CHK2) is part of the highly conserved ATM-CHK2 signaling pathway, which is activated in response to DNA damage, in particular after double strand breaks which can be caused by carcinogens like smoking. After induction of downstream targets, e.g. the tumor...
