Liver cancer therefore develops more commonly in people who have been infected. However in many cases the liver cancer doesn’t develop until at least 20 years after infection. This is known as “the latency period” and is consistent with the clonal origin of cancers and that five to eleven other genetic alterations are required for cancer to develop. The human papilloma virus is sometimes responsible for papillomas or squamous cell carcinomas of skin or genitals of either sex. It is often transmitted during the sexual intercourse and is particularly associated with cancer of the cervix.

1 Skin The UV-A and B wavelengths are the major carcinogenic factors of sunlight. Repeated sun damage to skin is often followed by thickening and crustiness of the surface layers of the skin called “hyperkeratosis”. This can be a pre-malignant condition and usually precedes the development of skin cancer. Hyperkeratosis of the lips also predisposes to cancer on the lips, most commonly the lower lip (see Figs. 2). Melanoma commonly develops in a pre-existing pigmented naevus, or mole, although sometimes a melanoma develops in skin where there has not been a mole.

With the common fatty tumour, lipoma, the risk is so small that removal of the lipoma is usually not justified. However, with others there is a somewhat greater (but still small) risk of malignant change and surgical removal is usually recommended. Such lesions include papilloma in the mouth or papilloma in a duct of a breast, or some soft tissue tumours, or adenomas of glands, or some benign tumours of bone or cartilage. With still other benign tumours, such as polyps of stomach or colon, papillomas in the bladder or especially papilloma of the rectum, the risk of malignant change is of real significance and surgical removal of these tumours is virtually always indicated.
