Quick summary:
Approximately 90% of cases of tripe palms are associated with internal malignancy, usually with cancer involved; in cancer patients with tripe palms alone, the most common underlying neoplasm was pulmonary carcinoma (53% of cases), whereas patients with both tripe palms and acanthosis nigricans frequently had gastric (35% of cases) or pulmonary (11% of cases) carcinomas.

[For every tripe palms case in the general population (GP) there are 1.25 cancer cases with tripe palms, etc.]


NOTICE: Keep in mind that every single hand sign always bares the potential
to have an association with multiple psychology- and/or health related themes;
a solid assessment always requires a consideration of hand sign combinations!
