Sunscreen on Your Feet? Doctors Urge Sunscreen Use and Exams to Prevent Skin Cancer on Feet
Date:7/28/2009

CHICAGO, July 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- When at the pool or lake we all lather up with sun screen to protect our skin from the harmful rays of the sun. But do we remember to apply sunscreen to our feet?

Many don't realize skin cancer can occur on the feet from unprotected sun exposure, and overlook applying sunscreen to the area. But, physicians from the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons warn skin cancer of the foot is prevalent and can even be fatal if not caught early.

"I advise my 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 promptly examined by a foot and ankle specialist," Dr. Dinh explains.

The American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons is a professional society of 6,000 foot and ankle surgeons.
