    gray line down fingernail

    hey all,
    just wondering how common this is and other's experience with this condition (melonchyia). I'm 25 y.o. female of South Asian descent. My grandma has these as does my aunt and friends. Mine started as a gray line like a thin pencil mark on left ring finger 4 years ago, and due to searching it online, I did get into panic mode. My derm took pics and told me to monitor it over time. I didn't really think about it much, and it in fact seems to be much lighter than it was when I first noticed it. However, I found an old pic and realize that over time it gradually became slightly wider than it was when I first saw it. I called the derm office ASAP and being the hypochondriac I am, lol, I'm getting really anxious about it again. Does anybody else have ethnic/racial melonchyia and have gotten it checked?
