    Exclamation Dark Brown-Black Patch Under Toenail?!

    Recently I decided to remove nail polish from my toes that I've had on for a few months. When I removed this nail polish all the nails were completely normal, except my big toe on my left foot had a black or dark brown "patch" on it.

    Go to the URL above if the picure doesnt work to see my toe.

    If anyone could help answer what this is, it would mean the world. I'm really worried and I'm not sure what it is...if it is cancer, a bruise or a fungal infection, etc.....there are so many possibilities and I'd really love an answer! It doesn't hurt if I press on it, but I am still worried.

    BTW I did go on a camp where I hiked for hours and hours and my toes (not just my big toe) hurt when I pressed on them for a couple days after but it went away quickly - this was a few months ago. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with what has happened but yeah...

    So - if anyone could give me a name of what I have and how I can treat it, it would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks again!

    Hi,
    that looks like a blood blister under the toenail.

    I have a black spot under my thumb nail. When it grew to the top of the underside of the nail I kept cutting the nail till the spot was gone. Obviously the spot is in the nail itself, not the skin underneath. Now yesterday I see the spot is back again and growing....doesn't hurt, doesn't smell, just there. Forgot to ask my dermatologist about it...wish I knew...suz
