Brazil is a tropical country with high levels of ultraviolet radiation throughout the year, and Skin cancer, meanly, nonmelanoma, is strongly associated with chronic sun exposure and sunburn episodes. Skin cancer is the most common cancer in Brazil, and non-melanoma rates almost 30% of malignant tumours. Approximately 180.000 cases of skin cancer are diagnosed annually. For this next triennium is expected augmentation of about 40% of cases of melanoma. It is well known that melanomas have a genetic panoramic for their origins, although the sunburns can also contribute to these numbers and maybe they have been more diagnosed with the improvement of dermoscopy and trained dermatologists. On the other hand, the Brazilian tanning culture is favourable to these statistics, even for professional outdoor activities or recreation, such as going to beaches and “house of tanning”. Brazilians still have in their perception that be tanning looks “healthier”. At INCA, the National Institute of Cancer in Brazil, in Rio de Janeiro, the dermatologist service provides about 4.000 appointments and 1.000 surgical procedures each year. Interventions that combine environmental and educational policies must be encouraged.
