Purpose The association between smoking and the risk of skin cancers has been studied without reaching consistent findings. This study aims to assess this association through an updated meta-analysis of cohort studies. Methods We retrieved cohort studies that investigated the temporal association between smoking and the risk of basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and malignant melanoma (MM). Pooled relative risks (RRs) and confidence intervals (CIs) of the included… 
The Role of p53 in Progression of Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma
The role of p53 in development of Epidermal keratinocyte-derived cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) and as potential new therapeutic target for cSCC will be discussed.
Tobacco Smoking and Liver Cancer Risk: Potential Avenues for Carcinogenesis
It has been determined that heavy smoking impacts the response of hepatitis C patients to interferon (IFN) therapy through different mechanisms, which can be improved by phlebotomy.
Daily Lifestyle and Cutaneous Malignancies
Although the influence of some daily lifestyles on the risk of skin cancers is controversial, this review provides a better understanding of the relationship between daily lifestyle factors and skin cancers.
Ear canal and middle-ear tumors: a single-institution series of 87 patients
EAC and MES tumors show great diagnostic and histologic heterogeneity with need for individualized investigative and treatment approaches, and local surgical control with or without adjunct RT is recommended in benign tumors.

Smoking and risk of skin cancer: a prospective analysis and a meta-analysis.
Smoking was inversely associated with melanoma risk, especially on the head and neck, among participants grouped according to smoking variables.
Relation between smoking and skin cancer.
T tobacco smoking is an independent risk factor for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of the skin and there was a dose-response relationship with number of cigarettes and pipes smoked.
Smoking and Cutaneous Melanoma: Findings from the QSkin Sun and Health Cohort Study
The apparent inverse association among former smokers may be due to residual confounding, although surveillance bias or biological effects cannot be excluded entirely.
Cigarette smoking and the risk of incident and fatal melanoma in a large prospective cohort study
This study provides limited support for the hypothesis that smoking reduces melanoma risk, and the inconsistent results by smoking status and lack of clear dose–response relationships weaken the evidence for causality.
Heterogeneous relationships of squamous and basal cell carcinomas of the skin with smoking: the UK Million Women Study and meta-analysis of prospective studies
Smoking-associated risks for cutaneous SCC and BCC are in the opposite direction to each other and appear to vary by anatomical site and meta-analyses of results were largely dominated by the findings in this study.
Tobacco Smoking and Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma: A 16-Year Longitudinal Population-Based Study
Prospective adjusted data provide strong evidence which suggests that cutaneous SCC should not be on the list of tobacco-related cancers, and tobacco smoking did not increase the risk of SCC of the skin.
Risk of melanoma in relation to smoking, alcohol intake, and other factors in a large occupational cohort
Melanoma risk was not associated with height, weight or BMI, nor with age at menarche, menopausal status, use of hormone replacement therapy, parity, age at first birth or oral contraceptive use, and none of the anthropometric or female reproductive/hormonal factors evaluated were related to melanoma risk.
The association of active smoking with multiple cancers: national census-cancer registry cohorts with quantitative bias analysis
The strong association of smoking with many cancers is confirmed and the evidence for protective associations with thyroid cancer and melanoma is strengthened, and the RRs for endometrial, kidney, and esophageal cancers were slightly increased and the oropharyngeal and liver (European/other) RRs were decreased.
