Hi docor, How is granuloma annulare treated? Is granuloma annulare a sign of cancer?
Hi Rupa garu, Granuloma annulare is seen most commonly on the skin of children, teenagers, or young adults. The generalized form is more likely to be found in older adults (above 50 years). The exact cause of granuloma annulare is unknown. Numerous theories exist linking the cause to trauma, sun exposure, thyroid disease, tuberculosis, and various viral infections. Some reports associate chronic stress with granuloma annulare as a trigger of the disease. Granulomas themselves don’t usually have noticeable symptoms. But the conditions that cause them, such as sarcoidosis, tuberculosis, histoplasmosis, and others, may create symptoms. The most prominent symptom includes bumpy skin rash, reddish eruptions, circular rash with mild itching. Granuloma annulare is occasionally associated with diabetes or thyroid disease, most often when lesions are numerous or widespread. It may, rarely, be related to cancer, especially in older people whose granuloma annulare is severe, doesn’t respond to treatment or returns after cancer treatment.
