I have dark areas under my toenail after mole removal. Could it be melanoma? (Photo)

I just had a suspicious mole (or freckle) removed yesterday because my sister found out she has skin cancer.

When You're Concerned, get a consultation--Mole removal: lasers, radiowave, shave

I'm not sure where your mole was removed from. However, since you're concerned and have family history, I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist for a formal evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer.
