Compared with controls, the risk of thick melanoma was significantly increased among men [relative risk ratio (RRR) = 1.56, 95% CI = 1.22-2.00], older participants (RRR = 1.76, 95% CI = 1.10-2.82), those educated to primary level (RRR = 1.70, 95% CI = 1.08-2.66), not married/living as married (RRR = 1.47, 95% CI = 1.15-1.88), retired (RRR = 1.39, 95% CI = 1.01-1.94) and not having a CSE in past 3 years (RRR = 1.45, 95% CI = 1.12-1.86). There was a significant trend to increasing prevalence of CSE with higher education (p < 0.01) and the benefit of CSE in reducing the risk of thick melanoma was most pronounced among that subgroup. There were no significant associations between cases with thin melanoma and controls. Melanoma thickness at presentation is significantly associated with educational level, other measures of SES and absence of CSE. Public health education efforts should focus on identifying new avenues that specifically target those subgroups of the population who are at increased risk of being diagnosed with thick melanoma. © 2010 UICC.]]> Tue 18 Apr 2017 16:05:34 AEST ]]> The impact of body mass index and physical activity on mortality among patients with colorectal cancer in Queensland, Australia http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22369 2 hour per week: HR = 0.64 (0.44-0.93) and 31% for all-cause mortality (increase >2 hour per week: HR = 0.69 (0.50-0.94). Compared with participants with healthy BMI, significant higher mortality risk was observed in underweight patients (all-cause: HR = 2.29 (1.47-3.59); CRC: HR = 1.74 (1.00-3.04), although lower risk in overweight (all-cause: HR = 0.75 (0.61-0.94); CRC: HR = 0.75 (0.59-0.97) and no difference in obese. Excessive weight loss was associated with increased mortality risk by three-fold but no difference in those who gained weight. Conclusions: Protective effects of being physically active and increasing that activity underlines the importance of interventions to increase activity levels among people being diagnosed with CRC. Impact: Increased mortality risks associated with being underweight or having weight loss over time is an important indicator for which clinicians, patients, and support personnel can monitor. ©2011 AACR.]]> Tue 18 Apr 2017 14:34:34 AEST ]]> Changes in the site distribution of common melanoma subtypes in Queensland, Australia over time: Implications for public health campaigns http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22368 Tue 18 Apr 2017 14:27:51 AEST ]]> A multilevel investigation of inequalities in clinical and psychosocial outcomes for women after breast cancer http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22364 Tue 18 Apr 2017 14:06:38 AEST ]]> Prognostic survival model for people diagnosed with invasive cutaneous melanoma http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22362 Tue 18 Apr 2017 13:52:38 AEST ]]> Impact of a video-based intervention to improve the prevalence of skin self-examination in men 50 years or older: The randomized skin awareness trial http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:22359 Tue 18 Apr 2017 13:38:34 AEST ]]> Clinical pathways to diagnose melanoma: A population-based study http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:23073 Tue 15 Aug 2017 14:46:09 AEST ]]> Presentation and detection of invasive melanoma in a high-risk population http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:23069 Tue 15 Aug 2017 14:32:08 AEST ]]> Clinical whole-body skin examination reduces the incidence of thick melanomas http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:23066 0.75 mm) (OR = 0.86, 95% CI = 0.75, 0.98). Risk decreased for melanomas of increasing thickness: the risk of being diagnosed with a melanoma 0.76-1.49 mm was reduced by 7% (OR = 0.93, 95% CI 0.79, 1.10), by 17% for melanomas 1.50-2.99 mm (OR = 0.83, 95% CI = 0.65, 1.05) and by 40% for melanomas ≥3 mm (OR = 0.60, 95% CI = 0.43, 0.83).

This is the strongest evidence to date that whole-body clinical skin examination reduces the incidence of thick melanoma.
