Posts for tag: Inspect Your Feet Daily For Signs of Skin Can

Many don’t realize skin cancer can occur on the feet from unprotected sun exposure, and they overlook applying sunscreen to the area. 
Skin cancer of the foot is prevalent and can even be fatal if not caught early. While all types of skin cancer, including squamous cell and basal cell carcinoma, can be found on the foot, the most common is the most serious form, Melanoma. Symptoms can be as subtle as an abnormal looking mole, or freckle found anywhere on the foot, and often go unnoticed without routine foot examinations.
Early diagnosis is key to effective treatment of the condition, but because people aren’t looking for the early warning signs, or taking the same precautions they do for other areas of the body, skin cancer in this region often is missed entirely. Also, it is hard to see all the surfaces of one’s feet, even for flexible people. 
We at Advanced Podiatry of Manhasset, Huntington, Plainview, and Maspeth advise our patients to regularly inspect their feet, including the soles, in between their toes, and even under their toenails, for any changing moles, or spots; and to have any suspicious areas properly examined and biopsied by one of our expert podiatrists at  Advanced Podiatry of Manhasset, Huntington, Plainview, and Maspeth.
