Younger age at first use and more frequent use of indoor tanning beds are largely responsible for the steep increase in melanoma diagnoses in women younger than 40 years.
A recent study showed that women younger than 50 years who are pregnant or were recently pregnant at diagnosis of melanoma have a higher risk of death from the skin cancer.
The risk of radiation-induced breast cancer is higher for women with large breasts or breast implants because extra screening views often increase their radiation exposure.
The risk of lethal prostate cancer, but not of overall, high-grade, or advanced cancers, was reduced with regular aspirin use.
A California laboratory team tested two electronic cigarette products and found both products, and their nicotine-free versions, caused cell damage that could lead to cancer.
