When it comes to skin cancer, ethnicity matters

Malignant melanomas can appear anywhere on the body, but the location tends to vary with ethnicity. In Hispanics, melanomas tend to occur on the legs while in African Americans they may appear on non-sunexposed skin such as the feet, palms, and nails. Brooklyn Hospital Center Dermatologists are acutely aware of these differences and screen patients accordingly.
