My sister has had a black nail for 6 years now. She went to see a consultant yesterday and was told that the diagnoses had come up positive for a melanoma in 2010 but her doctor didn't tell her and as a result failed to refer her to a specialist. She has spent hundreds of pounds over the years on over the counter fungal treatments.

The consultant took scrapings off her big toe and sent them away for analysis. I am trying to find out as much as I can in order to support her. Has anyone had the same experience and what were the treatments and outcomes. Thanks.
