BACKGROUND Individuals with nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) are at increased risk of developing subsequent cancers. Genetic predisposition to reduced DNA repair capacity may be an underlying susceptibility factor explaining the excess risk of malignancies. To test this hypothesis, a cohort study was conducted to examine the association between XPD Lys751Gln polymorphism and risk of a second primary cancer in individuals with NMSC. METHODS A subgroup of 481 individuals with a history of NMSC… CONTINUE READING
