Skin cancers – especially melanoma – can occur anywhere on your skin. Since skin cancers are the most common cancer of all cancers and we don’t require fancy imaging such as CTs, MRIs or PET scans to pick them up – skin self-checks should become a monthly habit. Did you know that your nails are also areas of skin that can potentially get melanomas? Melanomas do not always occur in sun exposed areas, the sun protected groin area is also at risk. While melanoma makes up only a small part, it is the one that causes the most deaths.
