What Causes: Mycosis Fungoides
It is not entirely known what causes mycosis fungoides. It is thought it can occur because of antigen persistence, over-exposure to carcinogenic substances, and retroviruses. Mycosis fungoides is rare with around only 450 people in the UK, each year, being diagnosed with the condition. It is most common to be diagnosed with this skin condition between the ages of 50 and 70, and most people with the condition enjoy a normal life expectancy.
