      Curious on folks experience with Zelboraf.  Did you get warts while on it?  Did you get them in odd places where the sun doesn't shine?  And is it possible to get them even after you stop taking Z?  I see my derm soon so I'll ask him about them also.  Oh the things we go thru!

          I have a dermatologist evaluation every twelve weeks and for a period of time while on Zelboraf, I was always having tags removed and biopsied; all except one turned out to be warts and the one was a cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma.  They were quite prolific and showed up on many different parts of my body.  I used to joke about the removals being part of my weight management program.

          It’s been close to a year since I've had any and since I’m still on Zelboraf I can’t answer the question about what happens when you stop.

          Hope this helps and good luck to you.

                I had several warts and 2 that looked the same to me but turned out to be Squamous Cell Carcinomas. I did stop Zel for a few weeks and my derm said he wouldn’t be surprised to see continuing skin effects for 2 months after stopping. I had painful little pimply things all over, anywhere with skin, not much fun.

                    Hi –

                    I'm new to the board – just joined a few days ago, although I've been lurking for months.  I've been on Zelboraf since November. I'm seeing a few of these, too – not too many as of yet.  I'm trying to get scheduled with my derm now to talk about them.
