Germline variants in MC1R may increase risk of childhood/adolescent melanoma, but a clear conclusion is challenging because of the limited number of studies and cases. We evaluated the association of MC1R variants and childhood/adolescent melanoma in a large study comparing the prevalence of MC1R variants of childhood/adolescent melanoma patients to that among adult melanoma cases and unaffected controls.

Abstract

Germline variants in MC1R may increase risk of childhood/adolescent melanoma, but a clear conclusion is challenging because of the limited number of studies and cases. We evaluated the association of MC1R variants and childhood/adolescent melanoma in a large study comparing the prevalence of MC1R variants of childhood/adolescent melanoma patients to that among adult melanoma cases and unaffected controls.
