Special Issue "Epidemiology and Risk Factors of Skin Cancer"

Skin cancer altogether accounts for more cancers than other cancers combined. We are well aware of the importance of ultraviolet radiation via sun exposure in the development of skin cancer. Despite this, certain aspects of specific types of sun exposure in different populations need further clarification, particularly for non-melanoma skin cancers. Published reports on surveillance for non-melanoma skin cancers are infrequent. Few studies have reported non-UVR risk factors for BCC, SCC, nevi and melanoma.
This Special Issue aims to expand our knowledge on the risk factors for skin cancer, including specific types of sun exposure beyond sun exposure when data are available.
Current Oncology is an international, peer-reviewed open access journal on oncology. This Special Issue invites a range of papers from original research articles to comprehensive reviews on risk factors and surveillance for non-melanoma skin cancers (BCC, SCC and others), nevi and melanoma.
We welcome manuscripts in the following formats:
- Original research;
- Review articles;
- Short communications;
I look forward to receiving your contributions.
Prof. Dr. Leslie K. Dennis
