    Every few years, there is a case report in the literature of foot pain being either the presenting feature of cancer or occuring in those with known cancer somewhere else in the body (due to a metastasis). Recently, there have been two ..... providing a timely reminder of our importance in arriving at a correct diagnosis:

    From: International Urology & Nephrology. 2004;36(3):329-30.
    Renal cell carcinoma presenting as solitary foot metastasis.
    From: Onkologie. 2005 Mar;28(3):141-3
    Isolated talus metastasis from breast carcinoma: a case report and review of the literature.

    The moral of this story:If it looks funny bioppy it!I had a lady recently with a reddish lesion on her great toe.I told her I was sending it out for a biopsy.Result:Benign.Still,a good clinical history is key.If there is any doubt,biopsy it or send for tests.The patients will not mind a bit.

    One of our Pods sent a woman off for biopsy a couple of months ago - it was malignant and she's lost her toe, but it hasn't spread. (It was a melanoma)

    Thank goodness for our cluey Pod!
