The incidence of skin cancer is increasing at an alarming rate due to the higher usage of tanning beds. Melanoma and non-melanomaare the skin cancer which is most common type of cancer in white population. Bothtumour entities show an increasing incidence rate worldwide. The rising incidence rate of nonmelanoma skin cancer is mostly due to increased rate of usage of tanning beds. An intensive uvexposure in childhood and adolescence was causative for the development of basal cell carcinoma where as for the aetiology squamous cell carcinoma a chronic uv exposure in the earlier decades was accused. Cutaneous malignant melanoma is the rapidly increasing cancer in white population. Thetumour thickness is the most important prognostic factor in primary melanoma. Epidemiological studies have confirmed the hypothesis that the majority of all melanoma cases are caused due to the increased usage of tanning beds. Indoor tanning is an important risk factor for development of skin cancer has been leading type of cancer worldwide. Melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer are now the common types of skin cancer that have been reached to epidemic proportion. Clinical research has revealed an association between indoor tanning and several health risks, including the subsequent occurrence of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer, the development of psychologicaldependence, and a tendency towards other high risk health behaviours. Unevenly pigmented skin with sun damaged skin do carry a higher risk of developing skin cancer due to excessive uv radiation exposure. The relationship between indoor tanning and melanoma has been investigated in several case-control studies and a few cohort studies, and the most recent meta-analyses found that ever users of indoor tanning devices had a 16%– 20% higher risk of melanoma than nonusers.Indoor tanning is associated with increased risk of melanoma.The majority of keratinocyte carcinomas have modest fatality rates, but significant morbidity is more noticeable. 90% of all skin malignancies in transplant patients are NMSC. About 40–50% of Caucasian transplant patients in western nations and 70–80% in Australia have developed at least one NMSC.
