The Ontario Podiatric Medical Association joins others in the fight against cancer during April is Cancer Awareness Month.
We are asking you during this cancer awareness month to be sure to look down at your feet and check regularly for skin disolouration, any new lumps and bumps and be sure to have foot pain and foot discomforts checked out by your podiatrist.
More than half-a-million Ontarians are alive today with a cancer diagnosed within the past 30 years. Hopeful? Definitely, but be alert to the fact that survival rates are poorer among cancer patients with co-morbiities such as diabetes.
Your feet can tell you a great deal about your overall health. Get them checked. Visit a podiatrist as you get your feet ready to be exposed with the new warmer weather.
