Hi everyone, I'm new here and I'm terrified at the moment. A black line appeared on my pointing finger nail and it terrifed me. I'm scared it might be Melanoma, It's grey and not black like all the photos I've seen but I'm still scared!
SCARED PLEASE HELP!: Hi everyone, I'm new... - Anxiety Support
Before worrying about something on your finger nail being cancerous yiu should deff look up the symptoms of melanoma nothing states you get a grey or black line on the finger nail.. its all about MOLES
With that being said your okay buddy its your fingernail nothing to be alarmed about maybe you scratched it with a frey object?
I have white "cloud" looking like dots on my nails it doesnt worry me its the nail it doesnt hurt or anything dont worry about it bud
Just please the worse thing you can docis begin to worry abot every little nick and cranny rhats how you aquire health anxiety and thats never fun path when it comes to anxiety always remember if your TRULY CONCERNED call and make an appointment with your doctor
This does not look like melanoma of the nail. the line is usually much much thicker and much darker and a little less symetrical and defined.
This looks like a bruise of the nail .wich always shoes up as a fine dark line or splinter type line. Also in melanoma of the nail ,the skin becomes darkened in color ar the skin before the nail begins to grow.Some people can have a line throught their nail due to ageing, it can be heriditary or it can be due tp psoriasis or simply trauma from some forgotten knock to the nail. Good luck
