    cancer can develop anywhere on the body. Always worth checking out. Your photo is a

    bit blurry. I have had many skin cancer ops. and also treated at home with a special cream

    if caught early enough - it is easy to get rid of. Please go to your doctor as this may not be a problem and might just be an age mark (dont know how old you are) or a sun spot. Once you have been you can stop worrying about it.

    As Trowie has said, cancer can appear anywhere. My hubby has had several episodes of non melanoma basal cell carcinoma, the first on his face (cheek area), but he also had one appear on a finger, so a toe is not outside of possibility. If treated quickly the outcome is usually very good. Doctors are always happy if you get them checked, they would rather you bother them and it turns out to be nothing wrong than not get something treated which turns into something more serious later
