About the Book

Incidence of melanoma, an invasive form of skin cancer, is on the rise in Canada. This study examines the association between tanning equipment (TE) use and risk of a second or higher order cutaneous melanoma. Subjects were Ontario participants of the International Genes, Environment and Melanoma study and were diagnosed with either a single primary melanoma (SPM) [n=406], or a multiple primary melanoma (MPM) [n=125]. Multivariate unconditional logistic regression was applied. TE ever/never use adjusted for age, sex, skin colour, family history, and average annual hours and intermittency of sun exposure was associated with an odds ratio of 1.72 [1.02,2.77]. Participants first exposed prior to age 20 showed a significant 2.42-fold increase in risk compared to never users. Consistency of current findings with those of traditional case-control studies suggests that artificial UVR exposures, particularly in early life, are important in the development of first, as well as subsequent, melanomas.
