Alcohol intake and risk of nonmelanoma skin cancer: a systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis.

Alcohol consumption may be tied to higher risk of skin cancer.

​This research work reviewed studies that analyzed the relationship between alcohol drinking and the risk of skin cancer. Researchers pooled data extracted from 13 studies involving more than 95,000 patients with nonmelanoma skin cancer. 

Data analysis revealed that alcohol consumers were more likely to suffer from skin cancer than non-consumers of alcoholic beverages. This study support the notion that alcohol intake may promote the development of skin cancer.
