melanoma under big toe
I had melanoma in 2006.. I noticed a black spot under my big toe, it is very tender to touch.. It is in the middle of my toe.. could this be melanoma?

Thank you,
steph

Do you mean toenail or toe? How long has it been there? It could be due to trauma or injury as feet often get knocked. An injury would change and clear up over a few weeks. If it's been there longer than 3 weeks you should see a doctor.

Take care.

It could still be an injury/blood blister but you do need to get it checked out by your dermatologist. I hope it is good news for you on Monday.

Take care.
