What's already known about this topic?
- Geographical variations in types of second primary malignancies following skin cancers have been noted in recent years.
What does this study add?
- Identification of environmental and molecular connections among linked cutaneous and noncutaneous malignancies may lead to earlier detection of related neoplasms via expanded screening protocols and development of shared treatment regimens.
- Heightened surveillance for development of second primary malignancies in patients with melanoma under 40 years of age should be considered.
