Abstract
Skin cancers are a common form of second malignant neoplasm among teenage and young adult cancer survivors (TYACS). The Children's Oncology Group specifies that TYACS should adhere to safe sun practices and be screened for skin cancer annually. Cross-sectional self-report data collected by our group indicate over a third of TYACS (n = 229; mean age: 19.8 years) intentionally sunbathe, with many reporting sunburn. TYACS sunbathing, sunburn, and sunbed use are similar to the general population (P > 0.05). These data suggest TYACS require intervention to limit sun exposure and improve their sun safety habits.
