Effect of ambient solar ultraviolet radiation on incidence of squamous-cell carcinoma of the eye.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: We have investigated the geographic distribution of squamous-cell carcinoma of the eye to assess whether solar ultraviolet light is a risk factor for this disease. METHODS: We used routinely collected population-based cancer incidence data and published measurements of ambient solar ultraviolet light in our analysis.
