I have huge anxiety anyway. Noticed a mark on my thumb nail 3 weeks ago. I’ve been trying cut my nail down to see if I can cut it out but it’s still there. Do you think this looks worrying?

I wouldnt worry. Stop cutting it and just wait and see.

That doesn't look sinister. Leave it alone and see.

Thank you. Massive anxiety at the moment. You have both really helped calm me down

Hi. If you are worried that it is cancer, I have just had a scare of this type - toe nail, long vertical line. It stays in the nail bed. Mine was massive! Went to see consultant who was lovely and it was a haematoma. Nail now grown and all gone. Yours is no where near the nail bed. It should grow up with the nail.
