A personal history of KC is well established to be associated with increased risk of recurrent KC and malignant melanoma, a less common yet more fatal form of skin cancer. More surprising is that a substantial body of epidemiologic(More)

BackgroundSome reports suggest a history of keratinocyte carcinoma (KC) may be associated with increased mortality. The high prevalence of KC makes the possibility of associated subsequent mortality from other causes important from a clinical and public health perspective. However, the variable methods and findings of existing studies leave the overall(More)
Purpose of the review To provide a synopsis of recent research advances in the epidemiology of keratinocyte carcinoma (KC), with a focus on indoor tanning and known risk factors for other forms of cancer such as cigarette smoking and alcohol drinking. Recent findings The evidence is strong enough to infer that use of UVR-emitting indoor tanning devices(More)
Some reports suggest that a history of nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) may be associated with increased mortality. NMSCs have very low fatality rates, but the high prevalence of NMSC elevates the importance of the possibility of associated subsequent mortality from other causes. The variable methods and findings of existing studies leave the significance of(More)
