Risk of basal cell carcinoma (BCC) has been reported to be several‐fold increased among organ transplant recipients (OTRs). However, due to lack of reliable BCC registration, population‐based risk estimates are scarce. 
Post‐transplant malignancy in solid organ transplant recipients in Ireland, The Irish Transplant Cancer Group
TLDR
A national registry study of cancer incidence following solid organ transplantation in Ireland found thatSolid organ transplant recipients are at increased risk of cancer compared to the general population.
The impact of transplant rejection on cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma in renal transplant recipients
The incidence of cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is markedly increased in renal transplant recipients compared with that of the nontransplant population.
Comparison of skin cancers in liver and renal transplant recipients: Results of a prospective study in an Australian tertiary referral centre
TLDR
A large number of organ transplant recipients have an increased risk of skin cancers compared with the general population, and research is needed to understand why this occurs.
Nonmelanoma skin cancer of the head and neck region in solid organ transplant recipients
TLDR
This work investigated the incidence, clinical features, and outcome of solid organ recipients with NMSC of the head and neck with the aim of determining the most common malignancies insolid organ recipients.
Vismodegib for recurrent locally destructive basal cell carcinoma in a renal transplant patient
TLDR
The hedgehog-inhibitor vismodegib has been safely used for the treatment of locally advanced or metastatic BCC in immunocompetent patients since 2012 and may occur even more frequently during the first years after transplantation.
Comparison of pre‐ and post‐transplant sun‐safe behavior of kidney transplant recipients: What is needed to improve?
TLDR
There are limited data on the contribution of pretransplantation total sun burden to the increased skin cancer risk in organ transplant recipients (OTRs), and the importance of patient education about sun‐safe behaviors is understood, but educations are often unsuccessful in OTRs.
Prevalence of skin cancer in Native American kidney transplant recipients
TLDR
The aim of this study is to determine if the prevalence of skin cancer in NAKTRs is the same as in white KTRs.
The clinical perspective on malignancies in renal transplanted patients
TLDR
This thesis investigated malignancies in renal transplanted patients from a clinical viewpoint and found that the use of regional tumours in patients with post-transplant malignancy is a viable treatment option.

TLDR
This manuscript focuses on the NCCN Guidelines Panel recommendations for the workup, primary treatment, risk reduction strategies, and surveillance specific to DCIS.
Risk factors and prevention strategies for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma in transplant recipients.
TLDR

Basal cell carcinoma in a series of renal transplant recipients: epidemiology and clinicopathologic features
TLDR
This study has shown that the risk of BCC is 10–16 times higher among immunosuppressed transplant recipients compared with the general population, and the recommended dosage of chemotherapy should be increased to protect against BCC.
A population‐based study of skin cancer incidence and prevalence in renal transplant recipients
TLDR
This data indicates that solid organ transplantation-related cancers are a growing public health concern but the extent of the problem is limited by surveillance systems with incomplete registration of cases and the paucity of reliable national incidence data.
Non‐melanoma skin cancer risk in the Queensland renal transplant population
TLDR
Non‐melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is an important complication of solid organ transplantation, especially in areas of high ultraviolet light exposure, and registry data may underestimate the scale of the problem.
A prospective study of the incidence of skin cancer and its risk factors in a Spanish Mediterranean population of kidney transplant recipients
TLDR
This poster aims to highlight the need to understand more fully the rationale behind the continued support for continued research into this type of cancer in kidney transplant recipients.
Basal cell carcinomas without histological confirmation and their treatment: an audit in four European regions
TLDR
This data indicates that the number of basal cell carcinomas diagnosed without histological confirmation and how they are treated in patients with these conditions is increasing.
RISK OF NONMELANOMA SKIN CANCER IN ITALIAN ORGAN TRANSPLANT RECIPIENTS. A REGISTRY-BASED STUDY
TLDR
The increased risk of nonmelanoma skin cancer among organ transplant recipients in a southern European population is confirmed and the most important factors that appeared to favor the development of skin cancer were age at transplantation and sex.
Risk of skin cancer and other malignancies in kidney, liver, heart and lung transplant recipients 1970 to 2008—A Swedish population‐based study
TLDR
Post‐transplant cancer risk varied by transplanted organ and by cancer site, with the bulk of the excess risk driven by an exceptionally high and accelerating risk of SCC.
Subsequent Squamous- and Basal-Cell Carcinomas in Kidney-Transplant Recipients After the First Skin Cancer: Cumulative Incidence and Risk Factors
TLDR
Immunosuppression with azathioprine in combination with prednisone was associated with a significantly increased risk of subsequent SCCs but not with subsequent BCCs, and patients with a first skin cancer are at increased risk for more skin cancers and need to be carefully checked for subsequent skin cancers.
Skin cancer risk among solid organ recipients: a nationwide cohort study in Denmark.
TLDR
Skin cancer following transplantation of 4 types of solid organs, and the risk of skin cancer in patients with chronic diseases that lead to organ transplantations, are assessed in Denmark.
