Europe

This webpage shows the risk assessment for Europe

The actual incidence rates that will be observed in Europe in the coming decades may well be worse than shown here due to ageing of the European population. In the 2 Figures below maps for Europe are presented for the years 2005 and 2065, giving the relative change in total skin cancer incidence compared with the year 1980. The map for the relative change in incidence in 2065 has large similarity with the map for the relative change in UV-dose in 2020. Cause and effect are linked. Both maps show the largest increase at the mid-latitudes.
