Study Investigates Link Between Rosacea and Types of Cancer

The study published in Cancer Epidemiology was conducted by Dr. Alexander Egeberg and a research team from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark.They are responsible for similar recent comorbidity studies connecting rosacea to glioma and gastrointestinal diseases, among other diseases and conditions.
