WHY IS THE INCIDENCE OF NON-CUTANEOUS MELANOMA HIGUER IN ASTURIAS THAN
IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD?
AbstractThis article presents data of incidence, cause, and other knowledge we
have about non cutaneous melanomas. What we found is that when analyzing
cases with this type of cancer in Asturias, the incidence is much higher
than what it is described in the literature for other parts of the
world. It is interesting because the study has been carried out in the
Central hospital of Asturias, it is the reference hospital in this
province of northern Spain. My opinion is that the life expectancy of
the region, combined with the lifestyle we have in Asturias, influences
these data in a very noticeable way.
