  1. Non-solar ultraviolet radiation and the risk of basal and squamous cell skin cancer.

    Article - En anglais

    A case-control study of non-melanocytic skin cancer was conducted among men in the province of Alberta, Canada.

    Two hundred and twenty-six cases of basal cell carcinoma (BCC), 180 cases of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and 406 age-matched controls provided information concerning skin pigmentation, occupational history, recreational activity, exposure to sunlight and sources of non-solar ultraviolet radiation (NSUVR) and other potential risk factors.

    Our analyses show no evidence of elevated risk for BCC or SCC among subjects exposed to various types of NSUVR.

    This is in opposition to studies of melanoma that have shown elevated risks for exposure to fluorescent lighting, sunlamps and sunbeds.
