As I have no idea what it is, I can't exactly categorize it under a specific topic so I chose other.
There is a small brown/purple-ish oval spot on my little toe(left foot). I don't know exactly how long I have it since I only noticed it last week, but atleast not more then a month.
The only thing I can connect to it is that I'm a frequent swimmer and it might be something I caught via the pool(surroundings)
If there is a possibility to upload pictures I can easily upload some for you to get a better idea.
is the lesion on the nail or the toe? is it a flat discoloration or does it have a raised appearance? It could be a skin lesion that needs biopsied to rule out tumors. is the shape irregular or uniform. one color or multi?
sounds like a skin neoplasm. i would get it checked by a podiatrist or dermatologist to make sure it is nothing to worry about.
i have excised tumors that were malignant on young people too.
they don't necessarily appear only in the aging population.
get it checked to be on the safe side.
