Constitutional factors and sun exposure were examined among 256 cases of melanoma and 273 controls in three counties of western Washington State.
Cases were individuals diagnosed with melanoma at ages 25-65 years during 1984-1987 who were identified from a Seattle-Puget Sound cancer registry.
Population controls were identified through random digit dialing and were randomly selected, stratified by age, sex, and county.
Participants completed a telephone interview with questions on demographic, sun exposure, and constitutional factors.
Risk factors for melanoma were examined through the use of logistic regression, controlling for age, sex, and educational level, and data on each exposure variable were tested for the significance of trends across levels of exposure.
