Changes in MC1R expression have been shown to confer a significant risk for all UV-induced skin cancers [64, 67, 68]. This effect remains significant, even after adjustment for skin color, indicating that MC1R may play a role in carcinogenesis that is not related to its effect on skin pigmentation, possibly by influencing the inflammatory response to UV irradiation [69]. A few other genetic alterations have been linked to the development of UVassociated skin cancer.
