    Black toenail mark

    Hi

    For about 3-4 weeks I have had this black mark on the bottom left hand nail of my right toenail. Didn't think much of it at first, thought it was dirt that was lodged and felt like a got a bit out. But it's still there but hasn't gotten bigger or moved etc. I was picking at it there and felt like I got something out of it but didn't want to touch it more in case I did more harm. It felt like blood, coz there seems to be a little bit of red. It seems to be sitting on top of the nail.

    I'm now worried about melanomas in particular subungual melanoma which is apparently very serious.

    I do fret over silly thing sometimes, but I am a bit worried.

    Thanks

    Dr Google claims another victim!

    My first question would be this..

    Have you had a toe injury recently?

    Have you stubbed your toe?

    Worn new boots?

    Tripped up?

    Played any sports?

    Dropped something on your toe?

    That's a few questions, but you get my drift?

    Years ago, my Dad got a black mark not on his toe nail, but on his bed on nail of thumb, he stubbed his thumb, and it took ages to grow out and heal,

    He did go the chemist and doctors to have it checked out
