Excessive sun exposure and ultraviolet (UV) radiation are the major avoidable risk factors for skin cancer, including melanoma. Sun protection can be achieved through behavioral modification, social changes and environmental changes: regular use of sunscreen, wearing hats and protective clothes, staying in the shade, creating shade by planting trees or constructing canopies, practicing work and sport activities during the time of the day when the sun is not the strongest and many others. The aim of this paper was to investigate the knowledge and attitudes towards sun protection and sun behavior patterns in melanoma patients, as well as among general population in Croatia. Our results indicate relatively good sun behavior patterns among our participants and their mostly correct perception of melanoma.
