    Could it be a melanoma?

    Hi everyone,

    Two months ago I noticed a black spot on my toenail up at the top and it had a brown streak down the side of the toenail. I went and got it checked out and my doctor said it was a fungal infection and I asked about the black spot and he said it was a blood clot. I got part of my toenail sent off to pathology to check for a fungal infection and the results came back with no fungal infection. I'm freaking out. Could it be a melanoma of the toenail? Two doctors both said it is fine and I have nothing to worry about.

    I'm 18 years old and Caucasian.
