Author Topic: might have skin cancer. what do  (Read 135 times)

found a dark spot under a toenail yesterday. like 3mm. already planning to visit doctor and perform impromptu amputation. toenail was clean 4 weeks ago but it's not like i record the state of my toenails much. cancer runs in the family, so...

whadduaidu now? am i already dead and i just don't know it yet? will medical expenses drop me into bankruptcy?

under a toenail as opposed to next to it or under the leading edge? could you have bumped it hard and caused bleeding under the nail? these turn into dark spots later on as the blood coagulates, and eventually it gets pushed out as your nail grows out.

But if its on the skin itself:

hopefully these dont all apply - that said still get it checked out if its clearly not under-nail bleeding

also yes you should be bankrupt now if you live in the usa, please send me all your money. this is legal, financial, and medical advice

under it. not bloody likely

family relative had cancer under a fingernail too, so... started out as a streak then literally the whole nail. this is luckily not at that point yet. though with how cancer works, that could mean nothing

becuz its the weekend no clinic is active, so i feel like i'm doing nothing but letting my potential-cancer grow. pleasant thought.
