Doctors remind us that every summer is very important for us to apply sunscreen to protect the skin and to react if we notice any changes in your skin. If we are not careful enough, we can get skin cancer. However, have you ever heard of nail cancer?
Unluckily, nail cancer really exist. Although this type of cancer is quite rare, it’s becoming serious treat for everyone. All tumors that attack the skin can also appear on your nails and fingers.
Actually, the tumor isn’t developing on the nail, but in the tissue under the nail. This type of tumor usually appears as a light brown line under the nail, and then slowly expands until the line becomes wider and darker.
Luckily, not every strange “thing” that appears on the finger nail or toe nails is a sign of tumor. In most cases, different spots appear on the finger nails and foot nails caused by lack of certain vitamins or minerals in the organism, and sometimes cause of mechanical damage.
Some changes in the color and texture of the nails may indicate a heavy metal poisoning, lack of oxygen in the blood, kidney failures, or other dangerous diseases.
If you notice any type of change on your nails, you should visit a doctor immediately. It doesn’t matter what’s the problem, the sooner you seek help – the greater the chances to cure any type of disease.
