THE nation's thong lovers are putting their lives at risk, an expert has warned, with their exposed feet putting them at greater risk of skin cancer.

Dermatologist Catherine Faulkner said thongs left their wearers dangerously exposed to skin cancer.

"Often sunscreens are washed off the top of the feet when people walk through water, so we do see quite a lot of skin cancers on the top of the feet," she said.

People should check not only the tops of their feet but also their soles and underneath nails for suspicious signs, she said.

"The real danger is under the feet because it's not a place you look.

"It's also where you get this dangerous and more aggressive melanoma, which is often diagnosed late."

The other body parts often forgotten when applying sunscreen are the lower lip; scalp; tops of the ears; and the area between the nose and eyes.

Cancer Council Queensland statistics show almost half of all Australians will develop some form of skin cancer.

Sunscreen sprayers, from corporate skin cancer awareness campaigner Suncorp, will visit South Bank today to give away hats and sunscreen.

I think its the water droplets which can act as a mini magnifying glass on the skin, and you end up with a teensey burn that supposedly turns cancerous?? same with water droplets on your car in the summertime, can leave little blotchy patches all over the paintwork only it doesnt turn to cancer it just looks shit.

I understand that this is how skin cancers become excaserbated.  With a free radical in the cream joining with a sweat molecule and a mutant gene develops.

LOL

No, I just fry fast.

Honestly 6 of us went for a walk on a beach on Saturday.

I was the only one with sunnies, hat and sunscreen on.
I was also the only one who got sunburned Angry
Only lightly but still

OUCH!! 

Funnily enough some of those who are members at the nudist clubs are WHITE!!  I mean they dont tan .. dont burn .. dont matter how long they stay in the sun.  In fact I can think of 2 we know, both men.

I have burnt the soles of my feet, walking barefeet through Masterton years ago - took ages to come right.
