A new study links tobacco use to skin cancer in women.
The study found women who smoked have a greater risk of developing a type of non-melanoma skin cancer.
Those who smoked for at least 20 years were twice as likely to develop it. The results are not the same for men.
Researchers found men who smoked only had a modest risk for non-melanoma skin cancer.
The study appears in the journal Cancer Causes Control.
