Conclusion In our cohort, seafaring was associated with a higher overall incidence of cancer compared to the general population. While the majority of cancers could not be linked to specific occupational facto rs, increases in mesothelioma, lip and non-melanoma-skin cancer indicate previous exposure to asbestos, ultraviolet radiation and potentially also chemicals with dermal carcinogenic properties at sea.byUgelvig Petersen K, Pukkala E, Martinsen JI, Lynge E, Tryggvadottir L, Weiderpass E, Kj ærheim K, Heikkinen S, Hansen J. doi:10.5271/sjweh.3877

AbstractNon-melanoma skin cancer primarily affects geriatric patients as evidenced by the fact that only 20% of these cancers are diagnosed in patients under the age of 60  years. Of importance, geriatric skin responds to procarcinogenic ultraviolet B radiation (UVB) in a manner that permits the establishment of tumor cells. Recent studies have indicated that wounding of geriatric skin with fractionated resurfacing lasers and dermabrasion upregulates fibroblast produ ction of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and normalizes the procarcinogenic acute UVB response consisting of basal keratinocytes proliferating while...

ConclusionThe anticipated increase in the number of cancer patients in Ukraine clearly has knock-on effects on a healthcare system undergoing reforms. Tobacco control appears to be the only functioning aspect of cancer prevention in the country, and there is a need for a broader national cancer control plan. The continued monitoring and evaluation of implemented cancer control measures by the NCRU will help prioritize targets and allocate future resources to cancer services.

CONCLUSION: Hispanic tattoo artists could serve as public health allies and influence early detection of skin cancers in the Hispanic population by implementing preventative skin cancer behaviors in their daily work routines and providing comprehensive sun safety information through aftercare instructions and social media.

Conclusions: HFUS can be used as a supporting diagnostic tool ensuring better pre-operative proceedings. HFUS is a non-invasive, easy and inexpensive screening method for the determination of different skin cancers as it provides valuable information allowing to determine the cutting margins and lesion shape.

Abstract Background/Aims: Recent studies have shown a cumulative dose-dependent association between the use of hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) and skin cancer, including melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) in Western Europe. However, whether this pattern is present in East Asia countries is unknown. The aim of this study was to examine the association between HCTZ use and the risk of skin cancer among a cohort of hypertensive patients in South Korea. Methods: This was a retrospective, population-based cohort study using the database from the Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service between January 1...

Here, we report blinded long-term follow-up results for the IBIS-II trial, which compared anastrozole with placebo...

ConclusionsThese results suggest that RA patients treated with anti-TNF are at an increased risk of NMSC, especially SCC. However, this association in RA urgently needs the more clinical studies and basic researches to further validate.Key Points• Rheumatoid arthritis patients treated with tumor necrosis factor inhibitors are associated with a higher risk of non-melanoma skin cancer compared to those patients treated without tumor necrosis factor inhibitors. Hence, tumor necrosis factor inhibitors may be avoided in rheumatoid arthritis pa tients who are at high risk of non-melanoma skin cancer.• Of note, rheumato...
