sunburn, bathing vacations and solarium use for the age period 0 to. Skin response to acute and chronic sun exposure and eye color were only weakly associated with risk and their associations seemed to be largely accounted for by that of hair color. Interactions between these risk factors are also of interest because they may have implications for individual risk of melanoma. As in the Nurses' Health Study, sunburn was positively confounded by sun sensitivity ( 12 probably because, to some degree, they measure the same characteristics, acute sensitivity to the sun and experience of intense medborgarskolan balett lund intermittent sun exposure, although differently weighted. Conclusions: Melanoma risk seems to continue to increase with accumulating intermittent sun exposure and solarium use in early adulthood. This is in accordance with a pooled analysis of case-control studies that showed higher risk of melanoma associated with high nevus counts among women with red hair than for women with freckling but no red hair or women without these phenotypes ( 7 ). The RR among women with two or more large, asymmetric nevi on the legs compared with no nevi showed a gradient from.72 (95 CI,.03-2.89) in brown or black-haired women.30 (95 CI,.15-5.06) in blond or yellow-haired women.95 (95. The effects of sunburns, bathing vacations, and solarium use were not modified by hair color, skin response to acute or chronic sun exposure, or large, asymmetric nevi on the legs.
The latter group had a RR.54 compared with women buss malmö falköping with no bathing vacations in all three age decades. We used one-way anova to compare sites of melanoma with regard to age at diagnosis. All P values were two-sided and a 5 level of significance was used. Eye color was not associated with melanoma risk ( Table 1 ). Calendar year of solarium use is important because exposure before 1982/1983 is likely to be from tanning devices with UVB-rich mercury arc lamps whereas exposure after 1982/1983 would be predominantly from modern sunbeds with UVA-rich fluorescent lamps. Section 1734 solely to indicate this fact. In Norway, a nationwide random sample of 100,000 women (born ) was drawn from the Norwegian National Population Register.
The proportion with one or more large, asymmetric nevi on the legs was largest among red-haired women regardless of whether they were diagnosed with melanoma (46 among red-haired, 25 among blond or yellow-haired, 19 among brown-haired, and 17 among dark brown or black-haired or not. MC1R in melanoma etiology. In a Swedish study, however, the association between sunbed use and melanoma risk was stronger for individuals with black/dark brown or light brown hair than for individuals with blond/fair or red hair ( 16 ).
