Skin cancer - Primary and secondary prevention (information campaigns and screening) - With a focus on children & sunbeds
Solar and artificial (sunbed) UV-exposure is the main risk factor for the development of epithelial skin cancer (basal cell carcinoma, BCC, and squamous cell carcinoma, SCC) as well for malignant melanoma (MM). UV exposure in childhood and adolescence is especially important. Therefore, adequate methods of primary prevention have continuously to be used and to be developed further to target these age-groups in order to reduce the risks of intensive UV-exposure. Primary prevention can effectively be combined with secondary prevention (early detection, screening) to reduce the burden of skin cancer and to decrease incidence, morbidity and mortality.
