Check out these places where skin cancer can hide.
At Be Smooth we recommend you see a dermatologist once a year to check your skin, if your dermatologist is not checking these areas for skin cancer, see a new one!
Melanoma of the scalp and neck has a higher risk of melanoma specific mortality than melanoma anywhere else on the body.
Behind the ear: even if you have long hair, your ears that often are neglected need sunscreen too.
Eyelids: 5-10% of the skin cancer occur in the eyelid, ask your dermatologist or eye doctor to check.
Mouth: if you have a canker sore like spot that last for more than a week ask your doctor or dentist to check if it is melanoma (skin cancer)
Under the nails: yes it really happens, go polish free and have your doctor check if it is a fungus or melanoma.
Underarms or lymph nods, when melanoma spreads that where it starts.
Butt and Groin: we are no experts/doctors but at Be Smooth if we see something bizare we will send you to the doctor.
Between the toes; proof that we get sun exposure everywhere, half of the people diagnosed with melanoma of the foot die within five years.
In conclusion wear your sunscreen and reapply!
