Myth: Vitiligo is caused by cancer


No, #vitiligo is not caused by cancer. It is a #skincondition characterized by the loss of skin color in patches, resulting from the loss of melanocytes, the cells responsible for producing melanin. The exact cause of vitiligo is not fully understood, but it is generally considered to be an #autoimmunedisorder, where the immune system attacks and destroys melanocytes.
