Background: Machine learning (ML) has been increasingly utilized for skin cancer screening, primarily of melanomas but also of non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC).Objective: This study presents the first quantitative review of the success of these techniques in NMSC screening.Methods: A primary literature search was conducted using PubMed, MEDLINE, and arXiv, capturing all articles involving ML techniques and NMSC screening.

Background: Skin cancer is strongly associated with photodamaged skin but body sites are often referred to as 'exposed' or 'unexposed' to sun without recognizing extent of site-specific variation.Objectives: To assess whole-body patterns of photodamage in an Australian population.Methods: A random sample of adult residents of Queensland underwent imaging across 10 body sites.

Non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) has a greatly increased incidence among the immunosuppressed and the DNA of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) is commonly found in these tumors. To investigate if there are any actively transcribed HPV infections in these tumors, we identified all skin cancers diagnosed after solid organ transplantation in Sweden during 1964-2011 (n = 7614 NMSCs) and requested the diagnostic tumor blocks from the corresponding pathology archives. For the present study, we selected diagnostic specimens from 345 NMSC and performed whole genome transcriptome analysis using NovaSeq (Illumina), in comparison with 3 cervical cancers. Read More

Background: Greenspace exposure has been suggested to be associated with a range of health outcomes. The available evidence on the association of this exposure with cancer is still very scarce and inconsistent.Objectives: We aimed to study the association between greenspace exposure and all-site and site-specific (prostate, breast, colorectal, bladder, lung, and malignant melanoma of skin) cancer incidence in the GAZEL cohort.

Solar ultraviolet radiation is one of the most common occupational carcinogens in Canada and is responsible for approximately 5,556 non-melanoma skin cancers per year. A large part of these cases are preventable by reducing solar ultraviolet radiation exposure. In this study, investigators estimated the potential economic impacts of different solar ultraviolet radiation reduction interventions among construction workers, as they are one of the largest at-risk occupational groups.
