moontje…..I believe, unlike the acanthosis nigricans malignia the type of skin cancer you are describing is not a coexistence of cancer of the GI tract. Good luck on the upcoming CT scan.

moontje……I believe it is called:acanthosis nigricans maligna. Generally, it coexists with another malignant condition.
I am quoting this from Wikipedia:
When seen in individuals older than age 40, this disorder is commonly associated with an internal malignancy, usually adenocarcinoma, and most commonly of the GI tract or uterus; less commonly of the lung, prostate, breast, or ovary. The stomach is the most common site. Acanthosis nigricans of the oral mucosa or tongue is highly suggestive of a neoplasm, especially of the GI tract.March 30, 2010 at 6:27 pm #36949saraMember
moontje – Out of curiosity, what type of skin cancer is it?
I would suggest discussing this further with your husband’s CC oncologist. Certain types of skin cancer are very common, and it is very likely that the skin cancer is unrelated. However, your oncologist is going to know the real answer to your question.
My husband had skin cancer (basal cell carcinoma) in 2008, and then was diagnosed with follicular lymphoma in 2009. Completely unrelated, although both manifest in the skin. Basal cell carcinoma makes me laugh because you will see on insurance application forms, “Have you ever had cancer (excluding basal cell carcinoma)?”March 30, 2010 at 4:50 pm #36948
moontje…..I remember a posting some years back, originating in the U.K. in where someone had mentioned that her Mom had the appearance of a brown spot on her skin. The physician related it to the disease of Cholangiocarcinoma. As far as I know it was the only posting pertaining to this.
What has your husband been told?

I’m sorry I can’t answer your question, Moontje, but I hope someone will come on soon who may be able to help. Have you tried the “search” function, too? There’s a lot information to be found in the “back-room” (I can’t think of the right word!!)
My very best wishes to you & Tom.
