When it comes to sun protection, the feet often go overlooked, but the skin on our feet is actually highly susceptible to melanoma and other skin cancers. It can occur anywhere on the feet - on the top, on the soles, between your toes and even under your nails.
It often goes unnoticed until it's in the late stages making prevention and early detection key to effectively identifying and treating the condition.
3 tips to remember when enjoying the sun this summer:
- Always apply sunscreen to the tops and bottoms of bare feet
- Check feet, including under the nails, regularly for any abnormal moles or freckles
- If you find anything suspicious, have your feet examined by your chiropodist.
