Online searches for melanoma, skin cancer increase in summer

June 30, 2015

Online searches for the terms melanoma and skin cancer increased during each summer over a 5-year period, according to a recently published report.

Researchers used Google Trends to find data on Internet searchers for “skin cancer” (a lay term) and “melanoma” for each state between Jan. 1, 2010, and Jan. 1, 2014. Periods with greater interest in skin cancer were identified by plotting overall search volume indexes (SVIs) over time.
