I am a 42 year old Caucasian woman with no history of melanoma in the family. I noticed a dark streak on my big toenail back in January. It has gotten darker and bigger since then and is brown, beige and black. Originally i felt nothing, but recently I’ve started having some pain. I don’t have health insurance so I haven’t been able to get it checked and I am very worried. It is not a bruise, I have not injured it. I only noticed it when I removed nail polish. I just joined this forum and am trying to figure out how to post pics. Any opinions or advice would be very helpful 

The melanoma that killed my aunt began on her toe.   You should see a dermatologist and pay for the exam yourself.
