    Brown spot under big toenail

    Recently discovered a brownish dark spot under my big toenail I recently wore tight shoes for two days and that has hurt my toe. Pain has gone away after the two days. Two weeks later a spot under my big toe has popped up with no pain. I am getting concerned as I don’t not know if it is cancerous or not.

    It is most probably trauma. I had it sveral times, the frst time I freaked out beyond belief for fears of melanoma.
    Go to the derm, they will confirm it is trauma but they might have to cut a bit of the nail and send a specimen off to the lab.
    It is worth the peace of mind.

    I have had a bruise under my toenail for over 20 years because of all the tennis I play. It doesn't hurt but looks a little nasty. Years ago I asked my dermatologist and he said it looked like a bruise. Mine would probably go away if I quit playing tennis but I like tennis. Not sure about yours but it sounds like trauma. Next time you are at the doctors ask what they think.
