    Toenail Biopsy

    I seem to have always had a discoloration on my big toenail, however over the last few months something got my attention that it was somehow different. It had become a stripe that starts at the base of my toenail and goes all the way to the top with the colors varying from light tan to dark brown. After some research, which by the way was pretty scary, I made an appointment to have it checked and was told it needed to be biopsied.

    A few days later I go in for the biopsy and at first she explained the way she was going to do the biopsy but after numbing it she must have called the lab because when she came back in the doctor stated the lab wanted a 2mm punch biopsy and told me it could cause the toenail to grow back with abnormalities? I was still trying not to faint from the injection so I was really not comprehending anything at all

    Everything I read led me to believe she was going to remove my toenail and then biopsy underneath, but two days later when I took off the dressing she had actually done a 2mm punch biopsy through the skin at the cuticle and not through the toenail?

    With her changing the way she was going to biopsy be cause for concern?
