That portion of the electromagnetic spectrum immediately below the visible range and extending into the x-ray frequencies. The longer wavelengths (near-UV or biotic or vital rays) are necessary for the endogenous synthesis of vitamin D and are also called antirachitic rays; the shorter, ionizing wavelengths (far-UV or abiotic or extravital rays) are viricidal, bactericidal, mutagenic, and carcinogenic and are used as disinfectants.
Color of the iris.
A circumscribed stable malformation of the skin and occasionally of the oral mucosa, which is not due to external causes and therefore presumed to be of hereditary origin.
Color of hair or fur.
A nevus containing melanin. The term is usually restricted to nevocytic nevi (round or oval collections of melanin-containing nevus cells occurring at the dermoepidermal junction of the skin or in the dermis proper) or moles, but may be applied to other pigmented nevi.

A malignant skin neoplasm that seldom metastasizes but has potentialities for local invasion and destruction. Clinically it is divided into types: nodular, cicatricial, morphaic, and erythematoid (pagetoid). They develop on hair-bearing skin, most commonly on sun-exposed areas. Approximately 85% are found on the head and neck area and the remaining 15% on the trunk and limbs. (From DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1471)
A malignant neoplasm derived from cells that are capable of forming melanin, which may occur in the skin of any part of the body, in the eye, or, rarely, in the mucous membranes of the genitalia, anus, oral cavity, or other sites. It occurs mostly in adults and may originate de novo or from a pigmented nevus or malignant lentigo. Melanomas frequently metastasize widely, and the regional lymph nodes, liver, lungs, and brain are likely to be involved. The incidence of malignant skin melanomas is rising rapidly in all parts of the world. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 4th ed, p2445)

Formative research for developing targeted skin cancer prevention programs for children in multiethnic Hawaii. (1/289)

Skin cancer is a significant and increasing public health problem. Improvement in sun protection practices among children holds great promise for prevention, and parents and caregivers play important roles. Health promotion programs are most likely to succeed when based on a systematic planning process including an understanding of current practices, beliefs, social norms and environments. This article describes formative research used to help develop the SunSmart skin cancer prevention program in Hawaii. Group discussions and interviews were conducted with 216 children in grades 1, 2 and 3, 15 parents, and 27 recreation staff. Children's discussion groups took place in intact classrooms. A combination of quantitative and qualitative methods was used. Multiple raters and an iterative process were used to analyze data from survey forms, observer impressions and audio tapes, and to draw the main conclusions. Sun protection practices in all groups were inconsistent, though general awareness about prevention was widespread. Children reported a reluctance to cover up with long pants and sleeves, and wide-brim hats, and did not understand what skin cancer was. Parents and recreation staff were supportive of education and policy supports, to improve both their own and the children's prevention habits. They were enthusiastic about interactive and creative activities. We conclude that targeted skin cancer prevention messages and strategies for Hawaii's children should promote gradual changes, provide environmental supports, and involve parents and recreation staff. Both the findings and procedures have implications for prevention elsewhere.  (+info)

The use of observational methods for monitoring sun-protection activities in schools. (2/289)

Evaluation of health promotion interventions aimed at behavioural or environmental change involves assessing change that occurs as a result of the program. Direct observational methods can be used for this purpose and this paper describes three such methods that we pilot tested for use in a 5-year intervention study aimed at reducing sun exposure in primary school children. (1) Monitoring 'No hat, no play' policies. This method involved video taping children in selected school play areas during lunch time and analysing the content of the videos to assess the proportion of children wearing various types of hats. (2) Assessing shade provision in the playground. This method involved taking aerial photographs of each school and using them to estimate the proportion of shade in play areas available to children at lunchtime. (3) Shade use. This involved children wearing polysulphone film badges to measure the amount of UV-B exposure they received during one lunch period, relative to the total possible dose registered on index badges. Each method was implemented successfully, and we demonstrated that the video and aerial photography methods produced highly reproducible results and that all three methods were feasible. These three methods will be used in our intervention study to assess longitudinal change in schools' sun-protection policy and practice.  (+info)

Evaluation of an intervention to reduce sun exposure in children: design and baseline results. (3/289)

The Kidskin Study is a 5-year intervention study (1995-1999) involving 1,776 5- and 6-year-old children attending 33 primary schools in Perth, Western Australia. The aim of the study is to design, implement, and evaluate an intervention to reduce sun exposure in young children. There are three study groups: a control group, a "moderate intervention" group, and a "high intervention" group. The control schools receive the standard Western Australian health education curriculum, while the moderate and high intervention schools receive a specially designed curricular intervention. In addition, children in the high intervention group receive program materials over the summer holidays, when exposure is likely to be highest, and are offered sun-protective swimwear at low cost. The main outcome measure is the number of nevi on the back. Other outcomes include nevi on the chest (boys only), face, and arms, levels of suntanning, degree of freckling, and sun-related behaviors. At baseline, the three groups were similar with respect to nevi and freckling after adjustment for observer and month of observation. Sun exposure was slightly higher in the high intervention group. The groups were also similar with respect to most potential confounders, although they differed with respect to Southern European ethnicity and parental education.  (+info)

Galectin-7 overexpression is associated with the apoptotic process in UVB-induced sunburn keratinocytes. (4/289)

Galectin-7 is a beta-galactoside binding protein specifically expressed in stratified epithelia and notably in epidermis, but barely detectable in epidermal tumors and absent from squamous carcinoma cell lines. Galectin-7 gene is an early transcriptional target of the tumor suppressor protein P53 [Polyak, K., Xia, Y., Zweier, J., Kinzler, K. & Vogelstein, B. (1997) Nature (London) 389, 300-305]. Because p53 transcriptional activity is increased by genotoxic stresses we have examined the possible effects of ultraviolet radiations (UVB) on galectin-7 expression in epidermal keratinocytes. The amounts of galectin-7 mRNA and protein are increased rapidly after UVB irradiation of epidermal keratinocytes. The increase of galectin-7 is parallel to P53 stabilization. UVB irradiation of skin reconstructed in vitro and of human skin ex vivo demonstrates that galectin-7 overexpression is associated with sunburn/apoptotic keratinocytes. Transfection of a galectin-7 expression vector results in a significant increase in terminal deoxynucleotidyltransferase-mediated UTP end labeling-positive keratinocytes. The present findings demonstrate a keratinocyte-specific protein involved in the UV-induced apoptosis, an essential process in the maintenance of epidermal homeostasis.  (+info)

Oral contraceptive use and risk of melanoma in premenopausal women. (5/289)

Melanoma has been increasing in white populations. Incidence rates rise steeply in women until about age 50, suggesting oestrogen as a possible risk factor. Oestrogens can increase melanocyte count and melanin content and cause hyperpigmentation of the skin. We examined prospectively the association between oral contraceptive (OC) use and diagnoses of superficial spreading and nodular melanoma among 183,693 premenopausal white women in the Nurses' Health Study (NHS) and the Nurses' Health Study II (NHS II) cohorts. One hundred and forty six cases were confirmed in NHS during follow-up from 1976 to 1994, and 106 cases were confirmed in NHS II from 1989 to 1995. Skin reaction to sun exposure, sunburn history, mole counts, hair colour, family history of melanoma, parity, height and body mass index were also assessed and included in logistic regression models. A significant twofold increase in risk of melanoma (relative risk (RR) = 2.0, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.2-3.4) was observed among current OC users compared to never users. Risk was further increased among current users with 10 or more years of use (RR = 3.4, 95% CI 1.7-7.0). Risk did not appear elevated among past OC users, even among those with longer durations of use, and risk did not decline linearly with time since last use. In conclusion, risk of premenopausal melanoma may be increased among women who are current OC users, particularly among those with longer durations of use. Further research is needed to determine whether low-dose oestrogen pills in particular are associated with an increase in risk and to describe possible interactions between OC use and sun exposure or other risk factors for melanoma.  (+info)

Evaluation of apoptotic cells induced by ultraviolet light B radiation in epidermal sheets stained by the TUNEL technique. (6/289)

Two major components of epidermal cells, keratinocytes and Langerhans cells, are injured by ultraviolet light B radiation, resulting in sunburn cell (apoptotic cell) formation, impaired function, and a reduced number of Langerhans cells. Quantitative analysis of Langerhans cell damage is usually performed using epidermal sheets, whereas that of keratinocytes has been performed by counting the number of sunburn cells in vertical tissue sections. In this study we assessed the influences of ultraviolet light B radiation on epidermal cells by apoptotic cell formation, using murine epidermal sheets stained by terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP nick end labeling technique. Ten to 75 mJ per cm2 of ultraviolet light B radiation induced apoptotic cells in abdominal skin of C3H mice. The cells were induced in 6 h after 50 mJ per cm2 of ultraviolet light B irradiation with the peak in number in 24 h, 18.8 +/- 5.0 per mm2 and 97.7 +/- 7.4 per mm2, respectively. One week later, the apoptotic cells were not visualized. As C3H/He, BALB/C, and C57BL/6 mice showed almost the same frequency of apoptosis in epidermal sheets from 50 mJ per cm2 ultraviolet light B-irradiated skin, the induction of the cells by ultraviolet light B radiation did not depend on the genetic trait of the mouse. Xeroderma pigmentosum type A gene-deficient mice, however, showed a greater induction of apoptotic cells (216.9 +/- 25.2 per mm2) by ultraviolet light B radiation than xeroderma pigmentosum type A wild-type mice (89.5 +/- 13.6 per mm2) and conventional mice. Pretreatment with a SPF 60 sunscreen agent was quite effective in reducing the induction of apoptotic cells. Using confocal laser scanning microscopy and double staining, 1.5 +/- 2.7% of apoptotic cells were Ia-positive cells in 24 h after 50 mJ per cm2 of ultraviolet light B radiation. Apoptotic Ia-positive cells were not observed 48 h after the radiation. On the other hand, no apoptotic dendritic epidermal T cells were observed in up to 75 mJ per cm2 of ultraviolet light B radiated skin. Thus, nearly all apoptotic cells were keratinocytes, and Langerhans cells and dendritic epidermal T cells appeared resistant to ultraviolet light B-induced apoptosis. Compared with the assessment in vertical tissue sections, the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP nick end labeling technique with epidermal sheets appeared to be a more physiologically relevant method for quantitative evaluation of apoptotic epidermal cells induced by ultraviolet light B radiation.  (+info)

Temporal events in skin injury and the early adaptive responses in ultraviolet-irradiated mouse skin. (7/289)

We examined the effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the time course for induction of sunburn (apoptotic) cells and expression of proteins known to be associated with growth arrest and apoptosis in SKH-hr1 mouse skin. Mice were irradiated with a single dose (2.5 kJ/m(2)) of UV from Kodacel-filtered (290-400 nm) FS40 sunlamps and the skin tissues were analyzed at various times after irradiation for the presence of apoptotic cells and expression of p53, p21(Waf-1/Cip1), bcl-2, bax, and proliferating cell nuclear antigen. The results indicated that p53 expression was induced early in the epidermis, reaching maximum levels 12 hours after irradiaton, and p21(Waf-1/Cip1) expression in the epidermis peaked at 24 hours after irradiation. In contrast, UV radiation induced high levels of bax at 24 to 72 hours after irradiation with a concomitant decrease in bcl-2 expression. Coinciding with these changes, apoptotic cells began to appear 6 hours after irradiation and reached a maximum at 24 hours after irradiation. Interestingly, proliferating cell nuclear antigen expression, which was initially confined to the basal layer, became dispersed throughout the basal and suprabasal layers of the skin at 48 hours and paralleled marked hyperplasia. These results suggest that UV irradiation of mouse skin induces apoptosis mediated by the p53/p21/bax/bcl-2 pathway and that the dead cells are replaced by hyperproliferative cells, leading to epidermal hyperplasia. This implies that UV-induced apoptosis and hyperplasia are closely linked and tightly regulated and that dysregulation of these two events may lead to skin cancer development.  (+info)

Sensitivity to sunburn is associated with susceptibility to ultraviolet radiation-induced suppression of cutaneous cell-mediated immunity. (8/289)

Skin cancer incidence is highest in white-skinned people. Within this group, skin types I/II (sun sensitive/tan poorly) are at greater risk than skin types III/IV (sun tolerant/tan well). Studies in mice demonstrate that ultraviolet radiation (UVR)-induced suppression of cell-mediated immune function plays an important role in the development of skin cancer and induces a susceptibility to infectious disease. A similar role is suspected in humans, but we lack quantitative human data to make risk assessments of ambient solar exposure on human health. This study demonstrates that ambient levels of solar UVR, typically experienced within 1 h of exposure to noonday summer sunlight, can suppress contact hypersensitivity (CHS) responses in healthy white-skinned humans in vivo (n = 93). There was a linear relationship between increase in erythema and suppression of CHS (P < 0.001), and a moderate sunburn (two minimal erythema doses [2 MED]) was sufficient to suppress CHS in all volunteers by 93%. However, a single suberythemal exposure of either 0.25 or 0.5 MED suppressed CHS responses by 50 and 80%, respectively, in skin types I/II, whereas 1 MED only suppressed CHS by 40% in skin types III/IV. The two- to threefold greater sensitivity of skin types I/II for a given level of sunburn may play a role in their greater sensitivity to skin cancer.  (+info)

The objective of this cross-sectional questionnaire study was to assess associations of a self-report index of sun protection habit strength with sunscreen use in sporting environments and outdoor physical activity. Participants (n = 234) in field hockey, soccer, tennis and surf sports in Queensland, Australia, completed a self-administered survey on sun protection during organized sport, and during general outdoor physical activity during 2005/2006. The sun protection habit strength index was dichotomized into two categories. Multinomial logistic regression analyses assessed the associations of low versus high sun protection habit strength with three categories of sunscreen use (no or rare use; inadequate use; and adequate use). Compared to participants with low sun protection habit strength, those with high sun protection habit strength had significantly greater odds of any sunscreen use during organized sport and during general outdoor physical activity. This association was strongest for adequate
Popular gaming app Pokemon Go is being blamed for a rise in reported sunburn injuries at local Emergency Rooms across the country. Doctors dont believe the severe sunburn is caused by the app itself but most likely because many of the users have not been exposed to sunlight in years. Dr. Peter Criss, Chief Dermatologist at the Hellmans Clinic explains, Many of these poor gamers have developed a non genetic form of albinism. Years and years of being sheltered from sunlight in their parents basements and closed bedrooms with only the glare of their monitor providing artificial light has stunted their bodies ability to produce melanin, this in turn has caused a shock to their system when they enter the sunlight for periods of as little as twenty minutes.. Besides the rise in severe sunburns, doctors are seeing a rise in reports of sprained ankles from prolonged use of atrophied legs, and panic attacks from gamers experiencing sweat for the first time.. ...

Sunburns are a painful condition where the skin receives to much exposure to ultra violet rays. You can get sunburn from natural sun as well as from tanning beds. The excessive radiation literally burns the top few layers of your skin resulting in redness, blisters and pain. Typically the first signs of a sunburn will show up within the first two to six hours while the full effects take 12 to 24 hours to manifest. It takes seven to ten days for the skin to fully begin to heal from a sunburn.. If your sunburn is exceptionally bad you will want to seek medical attention. However, for the average beach-goer who simply forgot to put on that extra layer of sunscreen, there are many effective natural remedies for dealing with sunburns.. Aloe. If possible, obtain a fresh aloe plant when you have a sun burn. The plan can be cracked open to reveal a soothing cream inside that can be applied directly to the burnt area.

Before proceeding further to best sunburn treatments, lets discuss what sunburn is? Sun rays feels good but they are not good for the skin. If you stay all the day out in hot blazing summer, sun rays can give you age spots, wrinkles and are the top cause of skin cancer. Sunburn happens when the body is directly exposed to the sun. The ultraviolet (UV) rays coming from the sun harms the fibers of the skin. The skin begins to stretch and bruises are formed. Sunburn is mostly common in summers or in hot areas where the sun rays are strongest. Symptoms of sunburn include redness of the skin, itching, pain and fatigue.. ...

It looks all fun and pleasing until we go back home and notice that we cant even rest because of our skin burning in hotness. The exposed parts of the body become red and itch sometimes. Although each and everybody of us experienced some of the sunburn symptoms at some point in our lives, in this article we are exploring this topic more.. So contrary to the old belief, sunburn doesnt only appear from exposure to the ultraviolet light (UV) from sunlight. It is also possible to get our skin burned from artificial sources. Some of these artificial sources might be sunlamps and tanning beds.. According to the CDC, more than 37.5% of adults got sunburned in the last year. Mild sunburn can be easily treated. But intense and repetitive sunburn might cause health problems. Premature aging or skin cancer, such as melanoma are some of these problems. This is why is recommended to protect your skin by ...
The first signs of sunburn may not appear for up to 4 hours after exposure and may peak between 12 and 24 hours following exposure.1 Mild-to-moderate sunburn typically presents with symptoms that can include red erythematous skin, tenderness, pain, and peeling of skin. Severe reactions can occur as well and can cause the development of blisters and sometimes fever, chills, and weakness. In these instances, the individual should always be referred to a physician for further evaluation.1 Treatment The goals in treating sunburn include addressing adequate pain relief, healing, and overall skin protection to minimize skin irritation and prevent further complications such as infections. Selection of treatment depends on the severity of the sunburn. In general, minor sunburn is initially treated with the use of cool cloths or compresses to affected areas; taking cool showers or baths; or applying topical agents, such as aloe vera, various skin protectants, or topical hydrocortisone to the affected ...

Sunburn is a type of radiation burn that results from an over exposure to ultra violet radiation, commonly from the sun. An excess of UV radiation can be life threatening in extreme cases. Sun tan is produced on exposing the skin to lesser amounts of UV radiation. Signs of sunburn The skin turns red and hurts on getting sunburn. The swelling and blisters depends upon the severity of sunburn. The basic symptoms are the feeling of flu, feverish, with chills, nausea, headache and weakness. After few days, the skin will start peeling and itching to rid itself of sun-damaged cells. » » » [Read more]. ...
The classic sunburn treatment - aloe vera - does more for your skin than just soothing your pain, although that part is important, too.. Sunburnt skin dries easily, and that strips your skin of some of its defenses and makes it more difficult to recover. By keeping moisturized with gentle products like pure aloe vera, you protect and heal your burn.. Be careful with moisturizers and lotions.. Most commercial moisturizers, even those marketed as sunburn cures, contain products that irritate the skin and prolong the damage.. Avoid lidocain! It might seem like it helps because it soothes some of the pain associated with sunburn, but it actually damages your skin more and prolongs your sunburn. ...

Sun-protective behaviors in populations at high risk for skin cancer Diana Y Diao,1 Tim K Lee1,21Department of Dermatology and Skin Science, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; 2Cancer Control Research Program, BC Cancer Agency, Vancouver, British Columbia, CanadaAbstract: Over 3 million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the US annually. Melanoma, a subtype of skin cancer that can be fatal if the disease is not detected and treated at an early stage, is the most common cancer for those aged 25-29 years and the second most common cancer in adolescents and young adults aged 15-29 years. The primary carcinogen for the genesis of skin cancers is ultraviolet light from solar radiation and tanning beds. In spite of massive health campaigns to raise public awareness on ultraviolet radiation, sun-protective practices still fall behind. A plausible explanation is the lack of behavioral change in the populations at risk; in this review article, we examine sun-protective
Sunburn is a symptom of a damaged skin produced by overexposure to the suns harmful UV-rays, and is a danger of traveling in sunny climates. Getting badly sunburnt on the first day of sun and sand holiday can ruin the rest of your trip. In addition, sunburns and too much sun over the years can lead to skin cancer. The basal and squamous cell types arent so bad as far as cancer goes, but its removal will leave unsightly scars. However, melanoma is just as lethal as the other deadly cancers. In the past few decades, its become known that sunburns substantially increase the risk of melanoma.
Summer is here and this means visits to the beach, lake and pool with the sun out in full force. As most people have experienced, it sure doesnt take much to get a sunburn. Sunscreens wear off, wash off, sweat off and reapplying at least every two hours is a must to prevent sunburns.. People generally know to apply sunscreen when they first go out in the sun, but what I have seen happen time and time again (particularly with men) is that they often dont apply sunscreen to their skin until they see a burn or redness. Once the skin is sunburned, applying more sunscreen over a burn wont provide additional protection so at this point, getting completely out of the sun is the best thing you can do. Or at the very least, cover up with a t-shirt and get in the shade.. If you see redness or a sunburn, follow these instructions:. -Get out of the sun immediately and get indoors. -If you cant go inside, seek shade under an awning, tree or umbrella. -Put on a t-shirt to filter out additional UV rays ...

Australia. What is the background for this study? Response: Skin cancer prevention programs, such as the SunSmart program in Victoria, have been implemented in Australia over 30 years with the aim of reducing the populations exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UV), the main cause of skin cancer. A recent reduction in melanoma rates among younger Australians has led to this paper which examines the extent of behaviour change in Melbourne, Australia, and the potential contribution of prevention programs to the decline in melanoma rates.. Previous population-based studies assessing the impact of these programs have focused on measuring the change in the prevalence of individual sun protection behaviours, and thus have largely overlooked the use of sun avoidance and composite sun protection behaviours. The focus on tracking individual behaviours may have underestimated the behaviour change associated with these programs.. We analysed data from a series of cross-sectional surveys ...
Oops. You tried your best. You know that the sun can damage your skin, causing premature signs of aging and boosting your risk of developing skin cancer. So you packed your sunscreen and you remembered to smooth some onto your skin before you headed out into the sunshine. But you still ended up with sunburn.. Perhaps you forgot to reapply every couple of hours? Perhaps you forgot to reapply after that quick mid-afternoon shower? Perhaps the SPF just wasnt enough for your skin type. For whatever reason, youre now over-baked, burned, and bemoaning your fate. What to do?. There is no quick cure for sunburned skin. Time heals. But as you wait for your charred skin cells to slough off and regenerate, you can take steps to soothe the pain, burn, and swelling associated with sunburn.. Here are 18 conventional and not-so-conventional items to add to your sunburn relief toolkit. Some you might have sitting around the house, others you may have to hunt down at health food stores or in the produce ...
Because symptoms are similar, telling the difference between windburn and sunburn can be difficult. Skin-damaging UV rays cause sunburn, while cold and windy weather causes windburn.
