: I have a line in my left thumbnail. The line color is almost graphite color (but is not really that dark) and it is thin. It stretches from the very top of my nail to the bottom of my nail. It is in the nail plate and not in the skin at all. I'm worried about what this could mean and could it be dangerous? I appreciate any input.

I tried to attach a picture from my website, but couldn't paste it here. I have attached the link below so you can visit the site and see if the picture looks anythin glike what you are describing. Here is the explanation of a 'nail mole':

Melanonychia are vertical pigmented bands, often described as nail 'moles', which usually form in the nail matrix. Seek a physicians care should you suddenly see this change in the nail plate. It could signify a malignant melanoma or lesion. Dark streaks may be a normal occurrence in dark-skinned individuals, and are fairly common.
