Abstract
Although sunbed use has been established as a strong risk factor for skin cancer, indoor tanning is still common in Europe. A North-South gradient for sunbed use in Europe has been reported, with greater use in Northern than Southern Europe. Euromelanoma is a pan-European skin cancer prevention campaign, which started in Belgium in 1999 and has subsequently spread to more than 30 European Countries. In this campaign primary and secondary prevention are provided to participants.
Data on participants to the Euromelanoma campaign were collected from 2009 to 2013 via a questionnaire enquiring on skin cancer risk factors, including sunbed use. Data on skin lesions suspicious for melanoma were also collected by the participating dermatologists.
