Google searches about skin cancer increase during summer months
the ONA take:
According to a research letter published online in JAMA Dermatology, researchers have found that Google searches for information on skin cancer and melanoma increased during the summer months, but this increase in interest in learning was not associated with early detection of skin cancer.
For the study, researchers used Google Trends to evaluate the search volume of the terms "skin cancer" and "melanom" from 2010 to 2014. Results showed that Google searches remained stable from 2010 to 2014, but did increase over the summer months.
Researchers found no significant association between search volume index and melanoma incidence, but they did find a correlation between skin cancer search volume index and melanoma mortality.
The findings suggest that educational and public health initiatives to inform the public about the risks of skin cancer and sun protection may be most receptive during the summer months when the interest in learning about these topics is highest.
