Mycosis fungoides may progress slowly through several stages, although not all people with the condition progress through all stages. Most affected individuals initially develop patches that are flat, scaly, pink or red and can be itchy. Cancerous T cells, which cause the formation of patches, are found in these lesions. Patches are found mostly on the lower abdomen, upper thighs, buttocks, and breasts. They can disappear and reappear or remain stable over time. In some affected individuals, patches progress to plaques, the next stage of mycosis fungoides.
