“…12,[25][26][27][28][29] In keeping with this theory, our study demonstrated a slight predilection for BCC to occur on the right side which is exposed to more sunlight when driving in Australia. Additionally, it has previously been proposed that as males drive more than females, more BCC would occur in males than females on the side of the face exposed to more sunlight when driving.…”
