Individuals who are heavy alcohol consumers may be at an increased risk of developing nonmelanoma skin cancer, an analysis has shown.
The findings, published in the British Journal of Dermatology, revealed that for every 10 gram increase in alcohol intake per day, the risk of basal cell carcinoma increased by 7 percent and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma by 11 percent.
These are the two most common types of non-melanoma skin cancer.
People diagnosed with melanoma who then undergo surgery to have lymph nodes removed near the original tumor site do not live longer than patients who forego this common operation, researchers said Wednesday.
The report in the New England Journal of Medicine was based on a study of more than 1,900 patients with melanoma, the deadliest kind of skin cancer, at more than 60 medical institutions worldwide.

Have you ever noticed little specks in the iris (the colored part) of your eyes? New research in the journal Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science is shedding light on these so-called eye freckles, and why some people have them and others don't. The specks, which occur in about 60 percent of the population, are clusters of abnormal melanocytes, or melanin-generating cells, that sit on the surface of the iris. Experts suspect that, like skin freckles, they may develop in response to sun exposure.
