Hi Anon!

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for seeking our help with your concern.

It is wise to have this checked by a dermatologist.

Causes range from a nutritional deficiency or imbalance to a form of skin cancer that affects the nail bed, called subungual melanoma. Generally, subungual melanoma only affects one nail.

Please don't worry too much but do get it seen to.

Please keep us updated.
