Abstract

Human studies of dietary fat as a possible risk factor for cutaneous malignant
melanoma (CMM) and non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) – principally basal cell carcinoma (BCC)
and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) – have produced inconsistent results. We had the opportunity
to examine the association concurrently for all three types of skin cancer in a population-based
study in Tasmania, Australia, involving 652 cases of CMM, BCC and SCC and a common set of 471
controls.
