Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
Within the last few months, I have developed an unusual mole on my neck which may be melanoma (says the dermatologist). The mole is to be removed and biopsied in February, but I note that several of the above medications for Parkinsonism warn against using them if melanoma is present. (I include ordinary alcohol as in wine in the drug list for I find this helps me to relax in the evenings. I do not drink more than 2 glasses of red wine per night.) My question is could any of the above drugs or combination therof have triggered this unpleasant form of skin cancer. Thank you.
