You know to check your body and face for skin cancer, but you probably overlook your feet. However, skin cancer is the most common cancer seen in the foot, says Jane Andersen, DPM, a podiatrist in Chapel Hill, NC and a spokesperson for the American Podiatric Medical Association. If you see “an unusual mole on the top or bottom of your foot or between toes, it should be checked out,” she says. “If you notice anything - a lump or bump - you should see a podiatrist.”

Don’t forget to check your toenails, too. Melanoma, the most deadly type of skin cancer, can occur as dark spots underneath the nails. If you’re not sure whether dark spots are serious or something benign, like dried blood from an injury under your toenail, see your doctor—and know that blood under the nail will grow out, while skin cancer will not, Dr. Andersen says.
