  • * Includes 147 subjects with only a BCC and 74 subjects with a BCC and a SCC.

  • Includes 11 subjects with only a SCC and 74 subjects with a SCC and a BCC.

  • P values from two-sided χ2 tests for comparisons with no NMSC (data column 1).

  • § Lycopene data were not available for one subject with no subsequent NMSC, two subjects with a subsequent BCC, and two subjects with a subsequent SCC.
