Thank you for a very important question. It is true that skin cancer (especially melanoma) may be found on areas of the body not exposed to the sun. You should not be embarrassed to ask your dermatologist (a lady) for a thorough skin examination. She is a well qualified specialist and will know exactly how to conduct a thorough skin examination without causing you any embarrassment. At the commencement of your consultation with her, you could tell her about the article which you have read. She will know how to deal with this. (MCH).
