I hate to be a pest.....and always worrying, but I need to talk to anyone who will listen about this next subject.
I always paint my toenails in the summer. I do this every 2 weeks. Last weekend, I noticed some black spot under my big toe and I decided to take off all of the nail polish from all of my toes.
What I found was very strange looking. One lone black spot the size of a pin needle and next to that was a bigger black spot. I cut my toenails as far as I could so I could scrub this black stuff out and even soaked it but it's still there. Last year, my son dropped a heavy object on his big toe so I know what an injury to a toe looks like, but this neither hurts and it's just a small black spot and a little larger black spot. The nail looks a little yellow also in comparison to my other big toe.
I have an appt to see my primary care physician on Aug 13th and my derm in Sept. This doesn't hurt nor does it itch as my other melanoma did.....but does this sound like anything to worry about? I never knew a mole could grow under a nail but at this point nothing surprises me anymore.
