if it is melanoma, how fast does it spread?
 
Has anyone had melanoma under the toenail? I'm curious if this spreads quickly? I thought I had a Dr appt in 3 days but it is not for 2 weeks. I have had half of my big toenail black for about 5 months but it seems to be changing a lot in the last few weeks. They initially were treating it as a fungus but the medication is definitely not working! I have not been diagnosed with anything but this "spot" is changing quickly and the skin around the cuticle is getting dark. Just a little nervous to wait another 2 weeks.....
