Sociodemographic, Constitutional Risk Factors Associated with Likelihood of Skin Examinations
the Cancer Therapy Advisor take:
The likelihood of recent screening for skin cancer among individuals was strongly associated with sociodemographic and constitutional risk factors, according to an article published online in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.
In this study, 50,044 participants of the California Twin Program self-reported data regarding prevalence and determinants of recent clinical screening for skin cancer.
Results showed the reported prevalence of skin examination (32% of participants across all ages reported having a skin examination) was greater than the national estimates.
Major factors significantly associated with recent screening included white race, highest level of education, marital status, number of large moles, and both individual and family history of skin cancer.
Whereas, lower socioeconomic status, racial minority status, and frequent UV-related risk behaviors throughout adulthood correlated to a lower likelihood of recent screening among participants.
