Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common cancer in white-skinned individuals with increasing incidence rates worldwide. Patients with BCC place a large burden on healthcare systems, because of the high incidence and the increased risk of synchronous and metachronous BCCs and other ultraviolet radiation related skin cancers (i.e. field cancerization). In this thesis we have performed multiple studies to define who these patients who develop multiple BCCs are and created prediction models, using both non-genetic and genetic predictors.
