Melanoma risk factors within the prostate, lung, colorectal, and ovarian cancer screening trial

Mark A. Hyde
Melanoma is among the leading causes of cancer death in younger adults. Established risk factors are mostly nonmodifiable with the exception of exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Because melanomas are not limited to areas of the body that are exposed to ultraviolet radiation and because other risk factors do not account for many cases of melanoma, it is expected that there are yet unidentified risk factors.
