Actinic Keratosis is the name of a skin cancer which can cause a wound to occur on the feet. Though it is usually found in areas of the body that are exposed to the sun frequently like the ears, face and the back of the hands, lesions can still be found on the feet too. They are described as having a raised flaky surface or being flat. They are usually the colour of the skin or reddish in colour. They are commonly mistaken for planter warts on the foot. These lesions are a sign of epidermis carcinoma. These lesions should be treated as though they are certainly pre-cancerous. Liquid nitrogen is used to freeze the lesions or the lesion is cut out and removed.
