A form of vitamin B3 significantly reduces the risk of non-melanoma skin cancer

(Natural News) Your body needs regular exposure to the sun in order to synthesize vitamin D. However, you can sometimes have too much of a good thing. Overexposure to sunlight is one of the many health risks that can lead to skin cancer. If you live in a tropical area or any location that allows...

Sven Schneider Indoor tanning is an important risk factor for the development of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. With our nationally representative monitoring, we aimed at describing tanning bed use, user characteristics, reasons for use, and risk awareness over time. In the framework of the National Cancer Aid Monitoring (NCAM), we collected representative data on 12,000 individuals aged 14 to 45 years in annual waves of n = 3,000 participants in Germany between 2015 and 2018. We used descriptive statistics and chi²-tests to uncover group differences. To compare data from the different waves, we calcu...

CONCLUSIONS: There were 1584 patients including 91 with cheilitis. Patients with cheilitis were more likely to be female, younger, and atopic and have concurrent eyelid involvement than those presenting with other dermatoses. Seventeen percent of patients with cheilitis had a post-patch test diagnosis of allergic contact cheilitis, and the most frequent relevant reactions were to patients' own products, fragrances, and sunscreens. Those with cheilitis had more positive reactions to sunscreens, especially benzophenones, compared with those without cheilitis (P

The surgical management of non-melanoma skin cancers has seen some significant changes over the past 20 years, as a result of developments in three equally important and overlapping specialties that deal with this specific pathology: plastic and reconstructive surgery, surgical oncology and dermatological surgery. Better understanding of vascular and particularly microvascular anatomy, coupled with technological advances in operating microscopes, microsurgical instrumentation and preoperative planning via advanced imaging, allows functional and aesthetic restoration of any radical oncological skin and soft-tissue surgery d...

Conclusion: There is limited data in the literature describing the specific effects of Mohs or excision for NMSC on QOL using a disease-specific QOL instrument. Our data supports increased QOL at 2-week follow up for patients with NMSC treated with Mohs, but no improvement in QOL was noted for patients treated with excision. This data is limited by the fact there were far more patients that underwent Mohs as opposed to excision, which gave the Mohs cohort greater statistical power when analyzing the difference in SCI.

ConclusionsOur findings show that oncologists and physicians have a rational approach to deprescription in patients suffering from cancer with short-term (pancreatic and lung cancer) respectively long-term (breast and prostate cancer) survival rates.

Dermoscopy improves sensitivity, specificity and early detection of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers. Due to multidisciplinary approach to melanoma, Plastic Surgeons may be asked to perform dermoscopy evaluation. For this reason, in some University Hospitals Plastic Surgeons in training might perform these evaluations. To assess the validity of digital dermoscopy conducted by Plastic Surgery Registrars, authors collected the diagnoses of excised lesions from dermoscopy outpatient clinic, comparing results with literature.
