Can physical injuries cause skin cancer?

Hi,

Can physical injuries like scratches, bruises, wounds, lesions cause skin cancer?

Or can such injuries develop into skin cancer?

Thank you so much

Re: Can physical injuries cause skin cancer?

Not likely. Although I do know that someone had accidently burned himself and a mole with very scalding hot water and eventually found out it was melanoma... There is no way to know if the burn had anything to do with it. But more than likely the answer to your question is no.
