Adults with previous nonmelanoma skin cancer more likely to use sun protection, but still sunburn

May 25, 2016

While adults with previous nonmelanoma skin cancer were more likely to practice sun protection compared with people without a history of skin cancer, they reported similar relative odds of recent sunburn, according to published study results.

Researchers studied self-reported data from the 2005 and 2010 National Health Interview Surveys of non-Hispanic white adults, including 758 with previous nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) and 34,161 without NMSC. Respondents were asked how long they stayed in the shade, wore a hat to shade their face, ears and neck, wore a long-sleeved shirt and if they used sunscreen while outside on a warm, sunny day for more than 1 hour.
