Toe Punch Biopsy to Test for Malignant Melanoma | Auburn Medical Group
Suspicious black or dark brown moles should be evaluated by a physician for possible need for biopsy which will determine if it is a skin cancer like malignant melanoma. Lesions like this one on the toe or other areas usually covered under clothing can go for long periods before being noticed because they do not cause any other symptoms. According to the American Academy of Dermatology: https://www.aad.org/public/spot-skin-cancer/learn-about-skin-cancer/detect/what-to-look-for FEATURES TO LOOK FOR: Asymmetry Border: irregular edges or a poorly demarcated border Color: variation, often with tan, brown, black, and sometimes white, red or blue Diameter: greater than 6 mm Evolving: changing over time This video is not intended to diagnose or treat any condition.

Skin Exams Catching Melanoma Earlier
"Well, I have light skin, I was foolish out in the sun for many, many years," says James Haggerty. After several go-rounds with cancer, Haggerty is protective of his skin, both in the sun and at his doctor's office. "I use to see him once a year, but I now see them four times a year. Simply because I've had several skin cancers," says Haggerty. Studies show diligence pays off, in particular when it comes to melanoma, the most lethal form of skin cancer. Patients who had at least one skin exam were 37% less likely to have invasive disease if diagnosed with melanoma. A professional exam should be performed during an annual checkup. "You should get into a gown and the physician or nurse practitioner should be examining you in a gown so they can look at your skin look for melanomas. Skin cancer is actually the most common cancer and a lot of people really don't realize that. So you need that to be a part of your exam," says Dr. Sal Lacagnina, health and wellness with Lee Memorial Health System. Something as fundamental as looking for skin cancer is substantial in terms of survivability. In patients who had a skin exam in the last year, 64% of melanomas were Stage 0, meaning purely superficial, as compared to 46% of patients who had not undergone a skin exam. "Part of the examination should be a head to toe skin exam, including looking at your scalp, looking in between your fingers, in between the toes. I've had patients develop melanomas under the nail, behind the eye in the retina. So you know, you really need a good comprehensive exam," says Dr. Lacagnina. Haggerty battles the less serious squamous cell cancer, but given his complexion and sun history, he is always on the lookout. "You have to keep right on top of them, otherwise they will begin to become serious," says Haggerty. As more people get an early cancer diagnosis, it is making their prognosis, much brighter.

Melanomas of the Foot | Dr. Jairo Cruz Jr.
Hello, my name is Dr. Jairo Cruz Jr. of Advanced Podiatry and I’m here to talk to you a little bit today about melanomas of the foot or skin cancer of the foot. Skin cancer, unfortunately, especially down here in Florida is very common and when it’s involving the foot, it usually presents as a small lesion that’s different colors and maybe grows in size pretty quickly over time. Usually not painful but nonetheless, is a new lesion that just pops up and patients usually come in and say, “Hey, I’ve never seen this before, so I would like to get it checked out.” And that’s a smart thing to do because unfortunately when lesions involve the foot, they’re usually aggressive and so therefore diagnosing it earlier and treating it as early as possible is a good way to prevent any other complications regarding that lesions. Just a few foot facts on melanomas in the foot: melanoma can be life threatening but in most cases, is a treatable cancer. There are about 1 in 40 white Americans who develop this at that rate. About 1 in 200 Hispanics and about 1 in 1,000 African Americans who develop this type of skin cancer. Skin cancer’s the most common form of all cancers and melanoma counts for maybe about 5 percent of the skin cancers. Around 80 percent of the lesions are usually formed or usually seen or diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 74. And women unfortunately have a higher rate of melanoma as compared to the male counterparts. In essence, the early diagnosis is the key to treating this type of problem. So, therefore, if you see any lesions on your feet, obviously come in to see us and we’ll be able to take a simple biopsy. It’s minimally invasive so therefore there’s no invasive procedure that needs to be done but just a small biopsy of the lesion will be able to tell us everything about that spot or lesion that you may have found on your foot. If you do this early enough, we can treat it and we can essentially eradicate the disease very quickly, if we get to it early enough. So, again, if you see any type of lesion on your foot, please don’t hesitate to come in to Advanced Podiatry. Our number is (813) 875-0555 or visit us on the web at www.thetampapodiatrist.com.

Melanoma on Your Foot
You have a spot on your foot that is changing or you have not seen before and you are concerned it could be more than just a mole. You are wondering how do I know if this is something I should be concerned about. Seeing a physician about a concerning skin lesion on your skin is a must, especially when you suspect a cancerous lesion like malignant melanoma. A melanoma is a lesion that begins from the pigment producing cells of your skin. Melanoma is a cancer of the skin that can appear as a red, pink or brown lesion.  \n\n Melanomas usually occur on sun exposed surfaces but appear anywhere on the foot even under our toenails. History of sunburn, especially in fair skinned individuals can increase the risk factors.   \n\n There are several signs of melanoma identified by “A,B,C,D and E’s” \n\n \n A - asymmetry – normal moles should be round, melanoma’s often have abnormal or uneven shape. \n B - border – irregular borders meaning jagged or blurred edges \n C - Color - a mix of colors is noted within the lesion \n D - Diameter – if the lesion is increasing in size, or greater than 6 mm or a little less than a quarter inch. \n E - Evolution meaning the lesion that you have is changing over time which typically does not occur with normal moles. \n \n\n It is important to get them treated early and aggressively because they can spread to other parts of the body and threaten your life. At FAANT we can obtain a small sample of suspicious skin lesions and get them evaluated quickly to help set your mind at ease.  \n

Difference between Melanoma and other skin pigmentations - Dr. Rajdeep Mysore
Melanoma is a cancer where the skin colour producing cells are involved. They are called as melanocytes. Melanoma is quite less in the Indian population because of the ability to tan. Tanning protects us from ultraviolet damage of the sunlight and hence we are less prone to melanoma than the Caucasians or the Europeans. However melanoma in Indians is more seen on the palms and the feet which are not seen with sun exposure, but it could be familial or genetic. When you see a dark spot which looks like a mole, it has irregular borders, or one of the part of the mole looks black, one part looks slightly brown, one looks slightly purple, that is it has different colours, then we suspect melanoma. If it bleeds spontaneously, then we suspect melanoma. If the surface of the mole – like growth is irregular, then we suspect melanoma. So there are certain criteria that we see that we do not suspect it as a regular mole, but it is a melanoma. When we see these characters, we take the biopsy of the particular area, we remove the entire area, along with a bit of normal skin and send it to a pathologist to examine. If the pathologist confirms it as a melanoma, a larger surgery has to be done, where the entire area, with a half a millimeter of skin surrounding the normal skin is removed. The best treatment for melanoma is most micrographic surgeries, where different pieces of the skin is removed and each part is examined whether it has cancerous cells immediately on the operating table. So if the left part of the skin has got cancer, then we keep removing till the cancerous part is fully gone. So this gives the best cure rates and very good improvement after surgeries. However melanoma when it is diagnosed by a doctor, it is very advanced stage and it may not give very good results by surgery alone and you might require other treatment like chemotherapy. So if you have any growth which is suspicious and which doesn’t look like a mole, it has change in colour, irregular shape, irregular surface, or multiple number are coming up, then immediately go to a doctor and get a biopsy done from that particular mole.

Melanoma skin cancer - Advanced Dermatology & Skin Care
Dr. Sherry Ingraham talks about Melanoma and tips on how to detect it. Melanoma 101 facts to share: It's one of the most common cancers in young adults. Melanoma may be the least common skin cancer, but according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), it's the most common form of cancer for young adults ages 25 to 29 and the second most common cancer for people aged 15 to 29. It affects people of all skin tones.It's true that people with more pigment in their skin have a much lower risk of skin cancer because they have more protection from the sun, but that doesn't give them a free pass to skip sunscreen. Basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas — the most common types of skin cancer and those most strongly linked to sun exposure — rarely happen in people of color, and melanoma is also rare, but when it does happen, it's mostly on palms and soles. It may not develop in an existing mole. It can happen in people with few or no moles.Yes, melanoma symptoms include a change in the shape, size or color of a mole and the more moles you have, the greater your risk for melanoma. Melanomas can also look like a bruise that doesn't heal or a dark streak under a fingernail or toenail, It can appear in areas not exposed to the sun.Like between your fingers and toes, and on your underarms, butt and genitals. Learn how to do a skin cancer self-exam and read up on the six spots your doc should check for skin cancer. Melanoma is also on the rise in Baby Boomers, who didn't have access to modern sunscreens in childhood. It's the deadliest form of skin cancer...While basal and squamous cell carcinomas are more common than melanoma, they have higher survival rates. According to the AAD, one American dies from melanoma every hour. In 2014, it's estimated that more than 9,700 deaths in the United States will be attributed to melanoma. The earlier you catch a melanoma, the better the survival. Do self skin checks. People with a family history of melanoma can be more prone to it than the rest of the population.

Five step skin cancer check
Whats New - Source: Checking for skin cancer A regular head-to-toe self-exam can help detect early signs of skin cancer. By Matthew Solan, Executive Editor, Harvard Men's Health Watch. Adequate sun protection when outside is the best way to protect against skin cancer. Yet, even if you are diligent about sunscreen, wear wide-brim hats and long-sleeve shirts, and stay in the shade whenever possible, it may not be enough. You still need to look for early signs of skin cancer, so you can alert your doctor. A regular skin self-exam is the best way to do this. By checking your skin regularly, you'll learn what is normal for you and can more easily note skin changes and abnormalities that require attention. Five-step skin cancer check. According to the Harvard Special Health Report Skin Care and Repair, the best time to check your skin is after a shower or bath. Use a full-length mirror and a hand-held mirror in a room with plenty of light. Follow these five steps to check yourself from head to toe: 1. Look at your face, neck, ears, and scalp. You may want to use a comb or a blow dryer to move your hair so you can see better. It may be hard to check your scalp by yourself, so you have a relative or friend check through your hair. 2. Look at the front and back of your body in the mirror. Then, raise your arms and look at your left and right sides. Bend your elbows. Look carefully at your fingernails, palms, forearms including the undersides, and upper arms. http://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/checking-for-skin-cancer?utm_source=delivra&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WR20170324-Skin&utm_id=438870&dlv-ga-memberid=29969030&mid=29969030&ml=438870 Be sure to visit us at Twitter http://twitter@monty0131.com Feel support us by visiting our website for additional information: link: http://stayingfittoday.com whatsnewmonty

What are causes of vertical dark line on big toe? - Dr. Rajdeep Mysore
A vertical dark line, we call it as longitudinal melanonychia. A longitudinal melanonychia is very common in dark skinned people and doesn't indicate that you have melanoma. In fair skinned people, I don't mean Indians, I mean Caucasians and Europeans, and you have a longitudinal black line on your nail, then you do have to be concerned about melanoma. The characters of longitudinal line due to melanoma are slightly different from other causes. Other causes are common congenital cause like people who have moles in other parts of their body. Moles can even occur on the nail matrix and when the nail grows, it leads to longitudinal lines along the nail. So it is nothing but a mole in most of the people. If somebody in your family had cancer, then you can get a biopsy done from the nail matrix to rule out melanoma. In a biopsy, the pathologist rules out if there are any cancerous cells in that sample.If you have normal nevus cells or mole cells, then you don't have to be worried.
4 Early signs of skin cancer which is ignored by women! - early signs of cancer
4 Early signs of skin cancer which is ignored by women! - early signs of cancer To catch skin cancer early, it is vital to pay attention to any changes in your moles or freckles or the appearance of new ones. Today's video will discuss Signs of Skin Cancer. When it comes to protecting their skin from sun damage and skin cancer, many people don’t take the necessary precautions. Among the things you should be most careful about to avoid skin cancer, the most important is watching your exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. These rays can do significant damage to your skin, much more than just wrinkles and age spots. Today, we’d like to tell you a little more about this disease and how you can help prevent it. Kinds of skin cancer, Before talking about signs of skin cancer that you shouldn’t ignore, you should know that there are two types of skin cancer: melanoma and non-melanoma. Melanoma is the most aggressive skin cancer, but is also the rarest. The risk is that it tends to start in the deepest layers of your skin. When this type of cancer appears, it can spread to other areas or organs. As for non-melanoma skin cancers, they produce changes at the cell level and are the most common and least aggressive. These often appear in the middle and top layers of skin, making them rather easy to spot. Signs of melanoma, We all have freckles and moles, so you needn’t worry about them. Freckles and moles are considered benign skin lesions formed by cells that synthesize skin color. However, if you notice that you’re suddenly getting a lot of moles or freckles or that the ones that you’ve always had have begun to change, it’s a good idea to see a dermatologist. 1) A for Asymmetry, It can be somewhat hard to see if a mole is asymmetric, but you can try dividing it with a piece of tape. When you’ve divided it into two, compare the sides. If they’re not equal, it could be a sign of skin cancer. 2) B for Borders (Irregular Borders), A normal mole or freckle has smooth, regular edges. If they’re irregular, jagged, or blurry, you should look for the other signs. It’s very important not to ignore this sign. 3) C for Color, Moles and freckles come in many colors: red, white, brown, and black. If you’ve had it since birth, the color doesn’t matter much. But if part of it or all of it changes color, that’s not normal; you should have your doctor look at it. 4) D for Diameter, If your mole or freckle is more than 1/4 inch across, it’s a good idea to have a dermatologist take a closer look. ---------------------------------------- People who watched this video: https://youtu.be/1FiyPWScHow Also searched online for: ► How To Lose Belly Fat For Women In 3 Days | How To Lose Belly Fat Easily | Get Flat Belly In 3 Days https://youtu.be/fd3TD719sdE ► Acne Scar Treatment Tea Tree Oil | What Is The Best Acne Scar Treatment At Home https://youtu.be/BQI1VeS92yo ► How I Grow 2 Inches Hair In 2 Days | How To Use Aloe Vera Gel For Hair Growth | Aloe Vera For Hair https://youtu.be/F1aHy8aV9T8 ► How To Remove Pimples Overnight | Pimple Treatment For Oily Skin | Acne Treatment https://youtu.be/UqtGTYyPVHo ------------------------------------------- FOR MORE DETAILS: ------------------------------------------- CONNECT WITH US: ► Like us at Facebook https://www.facebook.com/remediesone ► Tweet us at Twitter https://twitter.com/remediesone ► Circle us at G+ https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/115462721207283810926/115462721207283810926 ► Subscribe us at Youtube https://www.youtube.com/RemediesOne?sub_confirmation=1 ► Read Blog at Blogspot http://remediesone.blogspot.com/ ------------------------------------------ Don't forget to check out our YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/RemediesOne and click the link below to subscribe to our channel and get informed when we add new content: https://www.youtube.com/RemediesOne?sub_confirmation=1 -------------------------------------------- 4 Early signs of skin cancer which is ignored by women! - early signs of cancer Disclaimer: The supplies and the data contained on Remedies One channel are provided for primary and educational capabilities solely and do not signify any licensed, medical or totally different expert advice on any topic materials.

Sudden Hair loss on the feet and toes What this might mean is you have Serious circulation problems You may think not having hair on your toes is a good thing especially during sandal season, but having hair on your toes is actually a good thing. Get it checked out Sudden baldness can be a sign that your feet aren’t getting enough blood flow to sustain hair growth. Expect your doctor to check for a pulse in your feet, which is an indication that your heart may not be able to pump enough blood to your feet. 2. You feel Frequent foot cramping What this may mean is your suffering from either Dehydration or nutritional deficiencies Randomly occurring cramps are extremely common in the feet so don’t get too worried. They can be as serious as circulation and nerve issues, or as harmless as a nutritional deficiency. If you’re exercising, be sure to drink plenty of water, since dehydration often leads to muscle cramping. You might also try upping your intake of potassium, magnesium, and calcium (with your doctor’s go-ahead, of course), since their deficiencies make cramps more common. Or you may like to try For relief, soaking your feet in a warm foot bath and stretching your toes toward your nose, not pointing down. If the cramps don’t let up, see your doctor who can test for circulation issues or nerve damage. 3. A sore that won’t heal What this may mean – well its probably a sore that’s taking time to heal but it could also mean Diabetes or skin cancer Stubborn sores are red flags for diabetes. Uncontrolled glucose levels in the blood can lead to nerve damage all the way down to your feet, which means any cuts, sores, or scrapes can come and go without you ever feeling it. If infection sets in you could be in trouble. A non-healing wound can also be a sign of skin cancer. Melanoma can pop up anywhere on your body—even in between your toes—so be sure to include your feet in your regular skin checks. (Brush up on your mole-detecting skills here.) 4. constantly cold feet What this may mean: Hypothyroidism Hypothyroidism is the most common cause of feet that just can’t get warm. And if you’re over 40, you could be living with a sluggish thyroid without even knowing it. Unfortunately, cold feet are the least of your problems—hypothyroidism can also cause hair loss, fatigue, unexplained weight gain, and depression. Get your feet feeling toasty again by heading to your doctor for a simple blood test, and you’ll start warming up shortly after starting the daily medication. 5. A Sudden enlarged big toe What it might mean: Gout or other inflammatory issue if you The sudden onset of a red, hot, swollen, or painful joint then get immediate medical attention,”. It may be nothng or it maybe something more serious such as gout, inflammatory arthritis, infection, or trauma. 6. Bunions What it might mean: An Inherited faulty foot structure If you thought your bunions were caused exclusively by a closet full of gorgeous (yet restrictive and often painful) shoes, you can stop blaming the boutique. Bunions are actually a sign of a flawed foot structure that’s often inherited and aggravated by inappropriate shoes. 7. Heel pain especially in the morning What it might mean: Plantar fasciitis You can’t mistake it—that sharp pain in the bottom of the heel when you get out of bed or stand up from a chair. It’s a strain of the ligament that supports the arch of the foot. whether you did it by wearing too-tight shoes, walking in flip-flops, or wearing worn-out workout trainers, the longer you let it go, the longer it takes to heal. Your podiatrist will probably tell you to ease up on walking at first, rethink your footwear, and adopt a good stretching routine. 8. Flaky, itchy, or peeling skin What this may mean: a Fungal infection Even if you’re never donned an athletic jersey in your life, you could still be walking around with athlete’s foot—which is basically a fungal infection. It causes itchiness and peeling, and can be treated by applying anti-fungal cream and keeping your feet as cool and dry as possible during the day.

Melanoma Skin Cancer Symptoms You Should Not Ignore|
Melanoma Skin Cancer Symptoms You Should Not Ignore| Melanoma is a type of skin cancer, which develops in the cells called melanocytes. These cells are responsible for producing melanin, the pigment that gives color to the skin. In women, melanoma is most often seen in the lower legs, while the most common site in men is the back. Melanoma is responsible for the majority of deaths related to skin cancers. The exact cause of melanoma is not clear, but it is usually associated with DNA damage resulting from exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun. Risk Factors Some of the factors that may increase your risk of developing melanoma include: - A fair skin tone due to less pigment (melanin), which means less protection from UV radiation - Living in areas closer to the equator or at a higher elevation where sun exposure is greater - Regular usage of tanning beds or lamp devices - One or more episodes of blistering sunburn during childhood - Presence of multiple moles or unusual moles on the skin - A family history of melanoma - A weakened immune system - People with no risk factors or darker skin can also develop melanoma. - People with darker skin are more vulnerable to hidden melanomas in areas like the soles of feet and palms of hand that do not receive sun exposure. Warning Signs and Symptoms - Early detection helps in the treatment of melanoma. - Treatment options include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, biologic and targeted therapies. - If not detected early, melanoma can spread to other parts of the body and can be deadly. melanoma skin cancer warning signs Here are some of the warning signs and symptoms that you should not ignore. New mole One possible sign is a new mole appearing unexpectedly after the age of 21 that is asymmetrical, has an irregular outline and is bigger than 6 mm or ¼ inch in diameter. There can be one or more new moles. An unusual skin spot Another important warning sign of melanoma is a spot that looks different from all of the other spots on your skin (known as the ugly duckling sign). Changes in a mole’s appearance Changes in color, diameter, shape or size of an existing mole, birthmark, or a pigmented area can also be a sign of melanoma. It can increase in size and appear pearly, translucent, tan, brown, black or multicolored. Also, there can be symptoms like a scaly appearance, bleeding or oozing, or the appearance of a bump or nodule.

Melanoma-What Bob Marley Didn't Know
This is a short presentation I made with the goal of increasing awareness of early detection of skin cancer, specifically melanoma. I am a big fan of Bob Marley and the Marley Family, not only the music but the philosophy and the way of life. Early detection of melanoma could have saved Bob from having to make the decision to amputate or not amputate his toe. Ultimately, the cancer spread throughout his body and took his life at the age of 36. Early detection saves lives! Spread the word. Wake up and Live!

How to Check Yourself for Skin Cancer
Watch more Cancer & Disease Prevention videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/59-How-to-Check-Yourself-for-Skin-Cancer Most dermatologists recommend examining your skin once a month to become familiar with what it looks like normally—so you'll be able to recognize something that's abnormal. And since skin cancer is curable if caught in an early stage, your life just might depend on it. Step 1: Look for ABCD's Familiarize yourself with the ABCD's—that is, asymmetry, border, color, and diameter. Moles or birthmarks that are asymmetrical, have a jagged or irregular border, are blotchy or not all one color, or are bigger than about the size of a pencil eraser should be seen by a doctor. Step 2: Check after bathing Check yourself immediately after bathing so you're clean—and naked. It is important to check your entire body. Step 3: Examine hands Examine your hands, including your palms and fingernails. Step 4: Use full-length mirror Use the full-length mirror to inspect your arms, elbows, and underarms. Tip Take pictures of moles or birthmarks so that you'll have something to reference if someday you're unsure whether the mark has changed in appearance. Step 5: Check face, neck, & head Check your face, neck, and head in the full-length mirror, and use a handheld mirror to see the back side. Tip When checking your scalp, it is helpful to have blow-dryer on hand to make parting your hair a bit easier. Step 6: Check chest & back Check your chest and back and beneath your breasts if you have them. Tip Men should pay special attention to the trunk and women to their legs—these are the most common areas for them to develop melanomas, the most dangerous form of skin cancer. Step 7: Inspect genital region Use the hand mirror to inspect your genital region. Step 8: Inspect legs & buttocks Turn your back to the full-length mirror and use the handheld mirror to inspect the backs of your legs and buttocks. Step 9: Inspect legs & feet Sit down to inspect your legs and feet more closely. Step 10: See a doctor If anything seems to fit the ABCD rule, if anything is new or has changed since your last check, if you have a sore that won't heal, or if you're uncertain about anything you find, see a doctor. Did You Know? Every year in the U.S., over 1.3 million people are diagnosed with skin cancer, making it the most common form of cancer.
