In brief: No

Thus far, the only clear and known risk factor for skin cancer is the amount of sun exposure.
By reducing sun exposure, your risk of developing skin cancer is reduced, emphasizing the need for sun protection and sun safe measures. This includes routine use of sunscreens, seek shade, use sun protective clothing and routine skin checks.
