The authors examined the associations of melanoma of the skin (i.e., cutaneous melanoma) incidence rates with specific ultraviolet (UV) exposure metrics across the U.S. No correlation between the age-adjusted incidence rates of cutaneous melanoma and annual average, maximum, and cumulative UV levels was observed. The authors then estimated two indicators… CONTINUE READING
