What is Foot Melanoma?

Thriving — not just surviving — starts with knowing vital information about your disease and the available treatment options.

Foot melanoma, a prevalent form of acral lentiginous melanoma, is a variant of skin cancer that occurs on the feet. It can appear anywhere on the foot, such as the sole or under a nail. It begins in the pigment-producing skin cells called melanocytes, which are found in the topmost layer of the skin. They are responsible for producing melanin, a dark pigment that helps protect the body against the harmful effects of ultraviolet light.

What are the Signs of Foot Melanoma?

Here at New Hope Unlimited, among the missions of our cancer care team is to address the root cause and symptoms of foot melanoma.

The most common symptom is a dark spot of skin surrounded by the normal skin color of the foot. However, it is important to know that not all foot melanomas are dark-colored. While most melanomas are brown, some spots may appear tan, blue, red, white, black, or a combination of these colors. Cancerous cells underneath the nails can look like brown, black, or purple bruises.

Further, the following signs can help determine whether a spot is suspicious for foot melanoma:

  • Asymmetry
  • Border irregularity
  • Color variation
  • Large diameter
  • Evolving or changing

Pain when walking and a nail streak that damages the toenail are additional symptoms that may arise.

What are the Risk Factors for Foot Melanoma

Malignant melanoma typically occurs more often among people with certain risk factors. These include:

  • Having a naturally fair complexion
  • Being sensitive to the sun and burning easily
  • Having a history of at least one severe sunburn
  • Having 50 moles or more throughout your body
  • Having pre-existing moles on your feet
  • Having a family history of melanoma or skin cancer

How Do Doctors Confirm a Skin Cancer Diagnosis?

To improve your foot melanoma prognosis and avoid amputation surgery, your doctor may order the following tests to produce an early and accurate diagnosis:

  • Dermatoscopy
  • Medical history and physical examination
  • Biopsy or sample tissue removal for testing
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan

If you receive a foot melanoma diagnosis, the next most crucial step is to plan your treatment.
