Cancer incidence in systemic sclerosis (SSc): Meta-analysis of population-based cohort studies.

 

Systemic sclerosis is associated with an increased risk of cancer, particularly lung, liver, hematological and bladder cancer, though absolute risk is relatively low. Men with SSc are at higher cancer risk than women. Pub Med Arthritis Rheum. 2013 Apr 10. (Also see: Cancer and Scleroderma)
