    Dark light streak for 3 months on thumb only

    Hi - does anybody know if this will be subungual melanoma ?...3mnths ago I noticed this very light grey type line down middle of left thumb only - I have no lines any wer else - it is like a pencil mark left which won't rub out ..runs frm top of nail down to the bottom after the cuticle (nothing on the skin after the nail )....should i be worried ?..I am intrigued to find out why it has appeared . The only think low is my iron but I don't think the line is due to tht .

    Make a quick check with the doctor. It might not be something to worry about but its better to have doctors opinion

    Hi Rani,
    have you gotten this checked yet? I have the same thing. I am South Asian female and got one just like the one you described 4 years ago on my left ring finger. I did get it checked but considering my ethnicity and that my grandma and aunt have it, the doctor told me to monitor it. I forgot about it for a while actually, but monitored it from time to time and the gray color got lighter but the band is slightly wider. I am worried about it again and have scheduled an appointment on Monday. Wanted to hear from others who have a similar thing.
