Sunbed use has been significantly associated with increased risk of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), but its relationship with melanoma's risk factors such as high nevus count, atypical nevi and lentigines is poorly studied. Euromelanoma is a skin cancer prevention campaign conducted all over Europe. It offers a once-a-year screening during which participants' data, including sunbed use and phenotype, are collected via questionnaires.
Translational research in genomics has limited reach and requires efforts to broaden access and utility in diverse populations. Skin cancer is common and rates are rising, including among Hispanics. Germline variants in the melanocortin-1 receptor (MC1R) gene are common in the population and confer moderate risk for melanoma and basal cell cancers across skin types. Feedback about MC1R risk status may promote skin cancer risk awareness and risk reduction.
Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. Screening can aid in early disease detection, when treatment is more effective. Although there are currently no consensus guidelines regarding skin screening for pediatric populations with elevated familial risk for melanoma, at-risk children with the help of their parents and healthcare providers may implement skin self-exams. Healthcare providers may also recommend screening practices for these children. The goal of the current study was to describe current s...
The incidence of malignant melanoma is increasing faster than any other cancer, and it is now the second most common cancer in young adults. Most skin cancer prevention campaigns are based on the hypothesis that improved skin cancer knowledge leads to a change in sun-related behaviour.
Risk factors for primary non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) in organ transplant recipients (OTR) have been well described. Data for subsequent NMSC and dynamics in their occurrence in OTR is limited.
Incidence of non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) is increasing and can significantly impact on quality of life (QOL), yet there are few studies evaluating patient-reported outcome measures (PROM) in NMSC populations. We undertook a prospective feasibility study to evaluate a skin cancer-specific PROM, the Skin Cancer Quality of Life Impact Tool (SCQOLIT), in patients with a new diagnosis of NMSC.
Radiotherapy is a valuable therapeutic option for the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) in the ageing population, in non-surgical candidates, or when the tumour is extensive or localised in a cosmetically-sensitive area such as the lips.
Immunotherapy using PD-1 or PD-L1 inhibitors has been increasingly reported in a variety of non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSCs).
To describe the behavior of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) based on tumor's characteristics.
previous research on the risk of subsequent, primary non-cutaneous malignancies among patients with non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSCs) led to conflicting results. We aimed to investigate a possible link between NMSC and second primary malignancies by using the population-based data available in cancer registries.
The incidence of non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancer has been rising in Europe. Although the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer has since 2009 classified sunbeds as a Group 1 carcinogen, sunbed use, especially by those under the age of 18, continues to be a concern. As the only platform for cancer leagues in Europe, the Association of European Cancer Leagues decided to explore interest and actions by its member leagues at the national level against sunbed use, to share...
We conducted a re-audit of the surgical practice of United Kingdom (UK) dermatologists in the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancer and examined changes with reference to our previous audit in 2014. The audit was supplemented by a detailed assessment of completeness of the histopathology reports for each tumour.
The long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) metastasis-associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1 (MALAT1) has been implicated in melanoma. Polymorphisms in MALAT1 may play a vital role in the progress of melanoma by its regulative function. However, potential genetic variants in MALAT1 affecting the risk of melanoma onset have not been explored. In this study, two single nucleotide polymorphisms (rs3200401 and rs619586) in MALAT1 were selected for genotyping of 334 melanoma patients and 291 cancer-free controls in an...
Skin cancer is one of the most common malignancies. Despite controversy over its efficacy, skin cancer screening has become widespread although socioeconomic screening inequalities have been documented. Switzerland has the highest rate of melanoma in Europe but Swiss trends in skin cancer screening and social disparities have not been investigated. This study aims to evaluate trends in skin cancer screening and its association with socioeconomic indicators in Switzerland between 1997 and 2012.
The current standard of care for high-risk melanoma patients is a two-step process using Total Body Photography (TBP) followed by dermoscopy and is limited to a select group of patients. Methods: A cross-sectional study of patient characteristics and self-reported melanoma risk factors associated with TBP usage and pathology-confirmed outcomes was conducted on a sample of 4,692 patients in a single practitioner private dermatology setting. Results: TBP patients were significantly more likely to be male, par...
Non-melanotic cutaneous cancers and melanoma are the main common type skin cancers worldwide, and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and melanoma were most serious and high aggressive. Despite many therapeutic options, but the therapeutic efficacy is not satisfied in all patients with advanced skin cancers, especially in melanoma. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a technology for skin disease treatment because of its high effectiveness, no drug resistance or toxic side effect and easy to use compared with tradition...
This study describes a randomised control trial investigating whether printed leaflets or social media are more effective in increasing knowledge of the risks of sun exposure and melanoma in people aged 18-29. The study participants were 18-29-year-old university students or graduates, recruited in London. A baseline level of knowledge was measured using the Skin Cancer and Sun Knowledge questionnaire. Study participants were then randomised into either a leaflet arm or Facebook arm. Identical information w...
Non-melanoma-skin cancer is an emerging clinical problem in the elderly, fair skinned population which predominantly affects patients aged older than 70 years. Its steady increase in incidence rates and morbidity is paralleled by related medical costs. Despite the fact that many elderly patients are in need of care and are living in nursing homes, specific data on the prevalence of skin cancer in home care and the institutional long-term care setting is currently lacking. A representative multicenter preval...
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States, and risk for melanoma is greatly increased with a serious sunburn in childhood or adolescence. Skin cancer also is one of the most preventable cancers, as sun exposure is an almost entirely modifiable risk factor. Proper skin protection should start early in life when infants begin to be exposed to the outdoors. [Pediatr Ann. 2019;48(6):e213-e214.].
Melanoma, a malignant neoplasm of melanocytic origin, is now considered a "health emergency" as it represents 4% of skin cancers and it is responsible for 80% of skin cancer deaths, corresponding to approximately 1%-2% of all cancer deaths. It is characterized by complex and heterogeneous etiopathogenesis in which are involved constitutional and environmental risk factors. Among these, an important role is played by air pollution. We examined all the cases of melanoma of the U.O.C. of Dermatology and STD of...
Skin cancer affects nearly one in three Australians. As a preventable disease there have been many public awareness campaigns targeting skin cancer knowledge and sun protection in Australia in the last 30 years to increase knowledge of the disease and how to prevent it. Despite higher incidence and mortality of skin cancer in regional Australia and adults over 65 years though, little research exists examining this high-risk population's skin cancer knowledge and sun-behaviours, with most previous research c...
While studies report a lower incidence of skin cancer in Caucasian vitiligo patients with controls, the skin cancer incidence in Asian vitiligo patients is unknown.
Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer but is curable if detected early. Recent publications demonstrated that artificial intelligence is capable in classifying images of benign nevi and melanoma with dermatologist-level precision. However, a statistically significant improvement compared with dermatologist classification has not been reported to date.
The ultraviolet radiation index (UVI) was adopted internationally to raise awareness about and encourage the public to protect their skin from skin cancer. The current paper is a systematic review of over 20 years of research investigating awareness, comprehension, use, and impact of the UVI. Thirty-one studies were included from the USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and elsewhere. Awareness of the UVI varies by country, with samples from some countries demonstrating high awareness. However, co...
