Lifetime indoor tanning associated with squamous cell carcinoma cancer

October 02, 2019

What The Study Did: This observational study used data from nearly 160,000 women in Norway to examine lifetime indoor tanning and risk of squamous cell carcinoma, one of the most common types of cancer worldwide. The findings suggest the association between cumulative exposure to indoor tanning and risk of squamous cell carcinoma was the same regardless of how many years the women tanned and what age they were when they started.
