Association Between Ambient Ultraviolet Radiation and Risk of Esophageal Cancer

Tran, Bick; Kimlin, Michael; Whiteman, David C; Neale, Anna; Lucas, Robyn


Objectives: Ecological studies have suggested an inverse relationship between latitude and risks of some cancers. However, associations between solar ultraviolet radiation (UVR) exposure and esophageal cancer risk have not been fully explored. We therefore investigated the association between nevi, freckles, and measures of ambient UVR over the life-course with risks of esophageal cancers.METHODS:We compared estimated lifetime residential ambient UVR among Australian patients with esophageal...[Show more]
