BACKGROUND Common melanocytic naevi are considered early biomarkers associated with risk of cutaneous malignant melanoma. We sought to investigate if residing at different latitudes in Sweden influences the population's anatomical distribution of naevi in children and melanoma in adults. METHODS The nationwide Swedish Cancer Registry 1990-2012 gave cumulative number of invasive melanomas per body site, stratified by sex and age in northern (62-69 °N) (n=2823) and southern (55-58 °N) Sweden (n… CONTINUE READING
