Authors investigated whether skin cancer prevalence and indoor tanning behaviors vary by sexual orientation in the general population, using data from the 2001, 2003, 2005, and 2009 California Health Interview Surveys (CHISs) and the 2013 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS) of population-based samples of 192,575 noninstitutionalized, adult civilian men and women in California and the U.S. who identified as heterosexual or a sexual minority.

The study found sexual minority men were more likely than heterosexual men to report having skin cancer and having tanned indoors. Sexual minority women were less likely than heterosexual women to report having had non-melanoma skin cancer  and having tanned indoors.
