With more and more warm weather activities opening up as we all carefully emerge from the shutdown, it’s a good idea to pay attention to your skin to avoid burns and to catch any potentially worrisome skin conditions before they spread. This is especially true when it comes to your feet, where a problematic skin cancer lesion can go undetected on the bottom of your foot or under a toenail.
If you have any skin lesions on your feet or ankles, be sure to have them checked out by your foot doctor to rule out cancerous tumors. The foot experts at Desert Podiatric Medical Specialists, in the Tucson, Oro Valley, and Green Valley areas of Pima County Arizona, have unparalleled experience in treating all aspects of foot and ankle care.
