In this population-based study, we identified a slightly increased risk of melanoma associated with HRT use. Whilst we cannot rule out an aetiological effect of HRT on melanoma incidence, the results are compatible with increased healthcare utilisation and thus increased melanoma detection amongst HRT users.
