Hello, dear doctor, my boyfriend has skin cancer, and we had intimacy and a lot of  unprotected sex . Is there any possibility of me getting cancer? I appreciate your timely reply. Thank you very much. Judy

Hi there,
Stop worrying. Skin cancer is not contagious and it cannot be transmitted even after coming in direct contact with the cancerous skin. Skin cancer, or melanoma, resides within the cells of the affected individual and can spread through some of the body's fluids such as the blood and through a process somewhat like cloning. There has been no sufficient evidence to support that close contact or things like sex, kissing, touching, sharing meals, or breathing the same air can spread cancer from one person to another. If you are still worried clarify your doubts by a local health care provider.
Take care and regards!
