Dr. Rosen recalls the symptoms associated with cutaneous lymphomas and explains the cause.

Dr. Rosen:
We don’t know. There has been a lot of speculation that cutaneous lymphomas are caused by environmental exposures or by viruses, but there’s no proof at this juncture.

A woman would see a persistent abnormality in the skin, often a raised lesion. It could be a patch that changes the skin color or plaque, which is a thicker area, or actually a nodule.
