What is the most dangerous form of foot cancer?

You can develop many different kinds of cancer in your feet, but the most deadly is malignant melanoma. This tumor is very aggressive and can easily spread throughout the body. Usually it appears to be a brown or black spot or lump on the surface of the foot, though it can also be pink or red. It can grow anywhere on the skin, including underneath a toenail. Since not many people inspect their feet on a regular basis, the cancer can easily go undetected until it has already spread and become dangerous.
If you notice changes in your skin or nails, don’t ignore the problem. Look for the tell-tale signs of melanoma: asymmetrical shape, irregular borders, unusual coloring, and a diameter of more than six millimeters. Then contact the experts at Foot & Ankle Associates in Texas to have the lesion evaluated immediately. The sooner the cancer is detected, the more likely you are to eradicate it and save your life. If you are concerned that you or someone you care about may have a cancer of the foot, visit the website contact page or call our offices at (888) 784-5335 to request more information or make an appointment.
