As published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, researchers at Harvard Medical School and the Harvard School of Public Health have reported that tanning bed exposure during the high school and college years is associated with an increased risk of basal cell carcinoma (BCC; HR=1.73) compared to tanning bed exposure between the ages of 25 and 35 years (HR=1.28). During a 20-year follow-up of 73,494 female nurses with tanning bed exposure during high school/college or between 25 and 35 years of age, 5,506, 403, and 349 developed BCC, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), and melanoma, respectively. The HRs for BCC, SCC, and melanoma for tanning bed use (4x/y) were 1.15, 1.15, and 1.11, respectively. Compared to nurses with tanning bed use (6x/y) between the ages of 25 and 35 years (HR=1.28), high school/college exposure was associated with increased risk (HR=1.73). Tanning bed exposure increases the risk of BCC, especially when the exposure is at a younger age.
