Melanoma and Non-melanoma Skin Cancers

The most prevalent sites for skin cancer are the head, face, lips, ears, neck, chest, arms and hands, and legs, all of which are exposed to the sun. It can, however, appear on areas that are infrequently exposed to the sun, such as the palms, beneath the fingernails or toenails, and the vaginal area. Melanomas are more likely to be hidden in those with darker skin. Melanomas can manifest themselves in any portion of the body. Because non-melanoma skin cancer seldom spreads, a biopsy is often the only test needed to identify the illness and define its stage, or extent.
