Here’s another reason to use sunscreen: Melanoma—the most serious form of skin cancer—can grow underneath your nail bed on the nail plate and cause hyperpigmentation of the skin, explains podiatrist Dr. Jacqueline Sutera. It’s often a slow and painless growth, which makes it especially tricky to catch.
 One ominous sign: discoloration that extends beyond the nail and onto the cuticle, says Podiatrist Dr. Lori Weisenfeld. “If you’ve had no incidence of trauma and your nail is slowly starting to change color—especially if that color goes beyond your nail—you should get it checked out by your doctor,” she advises, adding that regularly pedicured patients should do a quick scan of their toes in between polish changes to catch any new developments. While melanoma can be deadly, it’s extremely rare and treatable if detected early.
