Health Status Outcomes for Sunburn Prevalence

Health Status Outcomes

The NCI^1^ has determined that '''sun and UV radiation''' exposure (including indoor tanning) are associated with a substantial increase in the risk of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and basal cell carcinoma (BCC), and that there is fair evidence that '''intermittent acute sun exposure leading to sunburn''' is associated with an increased risk of melanoma. 1.
