There are several areas that often go unchecked, but are prone to sunburn, like the scalp and hairline, ears, feet, hands, fingernails, and eyelids. These are also areas that aren't always covered or protected.
"I’ve diagnosed skin cancers on the scalp, between toes, in the genital region and on the palms of the hands," says Karen. To be safe, regularly do a head-to-toe check, beyond the sun-exposed parts of your body.
"Everyone should be performing self-skin exam every day including hands, feet and genitalia," says Perez. Both Karen and Perez recommend seeing a Board Certified Dermatologist at least once a year, and twice if you've ever have had a skin cancer.
