I know that over exposure to UV light increases the chances of getting skin cancer. I'm curious to know whether it increases your chance of getting other cancers as well?

I don't know the real facts but in theory I suppose that it doesn't. UV has low permeability so it only damages the tissues directly exposed to it.
