History of melanoma, actinic skin lesions linked to better use of sun protection

July 7, 2015

A recent population-based study has revealed that people with a previously confirmed melanoma diagnosis and/or treated actinic lesions were more likely to regularly use sun protection and skin exam practices, according to a recent study.

“People with a treatment history for actinic lesions and those with high-risk phenotypes were more likely to engage in both sun protection and skin exam practices than those without these, suggesting that they are receptive to primary and secondary prevention messages,” Catherine M. Olsen, PhD, and colleagues wrote in JAMA Dermatology.
