Young women who experience multiple severe sunburns may be at an increased risk for melanoma, according to the results of a recent study published online on June 2, 2014, in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. White women who reported having 5 or more blistering sunburns between 15 and 20 years of age were 80% more likely to develop melanoma and 68% more likely to develop basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.
