Have lynch syndrome. Removed squamous cell. Had skin graft. Will there be another CA growth?

Hi- Not sure if this is a scam or not? However I have lynch syndrome and I have just had a skin graft for a squamish cell that was removed and on my third month follow up - the Dr. ( dermatologist) saw some suspicious skin growths and prescribed carac - so I am doing my research now.
If I use carac- what is the statistical % that it will help prevent any of these growths from becoming another CA growth?

If you really have Lynch Syndrome, then the chances of having growth of lesion in different organ is likely, because it is the hereditary kind of disease, but there could be hope for such patient in field of genetic medicine, you can have word with oncologist, have good luck.
