WALKING ON THE BEACH, FROLICKING IN THE SURF, PARTICIPATING IN SPORTS, STROLLING THROUGH A THEME PARK WHILE ON VACATION - YOUR FEET WILL CARRY YOU THROUGH A LOT OF FUN THIS SUMMER.  BUT CAN PAYING ATTENTION TO THEM HELP YOU AVOID THE MOST COMMON FORM OF SKIN CANCER IN AMERICA?  POSSIBLY, EXPERTS SAY.

"WHILE SKIN CANCERS TYPICALLY APPEAR ON AREAS OF SUN-EXPOSED SKIN LIKE THE FACE ARMS, AND HANDS, THEY CAN ALSO APPEAR ON AREAS THAT GET MUCH LESS SUN, SUCH AS THE FEET." SAYS PODIATRIST, DR. JOSEPH CAPORUSSO PRESIDENT OF THE AMERICAN PODIATRIC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION.  FYI MARZ IS A MEMBER OF THE APMA.  "WITH FLIP-FLOPS AND SANDLES BEING COMMON SUMMER FOOT ATTIRE, MORE AMERICANS THAN EVER ARE EXPOSING THEIR FEET TO THE SUN'S POTENTIAL HARMFUL RAYS.  IT'S IMPORTANT FOR EVERYONE TO HAVE THEIR FEET CHECKED BY TODAY'S PODIATRIST FOR ANY SIGNS OR SYMPTOMS OF SKIN CANCER."

IN OUR OFFICE I HAD A PATIENT WHO HAD WHAT LOOKED LIKE A FRECKLE AND HAD BEEN TOLD BY HER DOCTOR NOT TO WORRY AND THAT IT WAS IN FACT A FRECKLE, ALTHOUGH THE PATIENT HAD NO PRIOR RECOLECTION OF A FRECKLE IN THAT AREA.  I SENT HER TO A DERMATOLOGIST WHO DID A BIOPSY AND THE DIAGNOSIS WAS MALIGNANT MELONOMA.  UNFORTUNATELY THIS PATIENTS DAYS WERE NUMBERED AND DID NOT LIVE OUT THE YEAR.  NEVER LET SKIN LESIONS GO UNDIAGNOSED.  MAKE SURE YOU CONSULT YOUR FOOT SPECIALIST.
