Other intermediate hosts include sheep and cattle. In its adult phase, the tapeworm lives in the intestines of dog species worldwide which serve as the definitive host. Humans and other intermediate hosts become infected when ingesting food or water contaminated by dog feces. The tapeworm eggs are ingested during play with dogs or by consumption of fecally contaminated garden vegetables. Most human cases occur in areas where dogs and livestock are raised together.

Usually found above the waist on sun-exposed surfaces of the body. Scalp, breasts, and buttocks rarely have normal moles. Dysplastic Nevi May be present in large numbers (more than 100 on the same person). However, some people have only a few dysplastic nevi. May occur anywhere on the body but most frequently on the back and areas exposed to the sun. May also appear below the waist and on the scalp, breasts, and buttocks.
