Ladies, Check Your Calves

I had a dermatologist appointment today to get an itchy mole examined. It's fine, but I did learn something interesting. The doctor said that many melanomas in women are on the skin of the calf. The calf of my leg is not a hot spot for me when it comes to smearing on sunscreen. The neck, ears, lips, face, back, shoulders, you know the routine. I guess I will pay a little more attention to protecting my lower legs from sun exposure. So, check you calves for moles. And when you get back from the cow pasture, check you lower legs, too. (That's just a little rural humor for ya!)
